Default Multiple Rhyme - Dead-eye wakeful

In dead-eye wakeful hours,
in debt, I wait for lours
and censure. Lie-friends, sigh
and send your life-rends. I
am poured out, sold,
and poor doubts old
assail my bankrupt soul.

A holorime is when whole lines rhyme with each other, as I mentioned here. The constraints of the form make it really hard to get anything that makes sense, but I think this one might! I think it's about a man who's lost everything, contemplating his state.

"Lours" are glowering looks, and can be spelled "lowers" as well. I chose the -our spelling to make sure people say it right.

"I just saved 100% on my car insurance by switching to walking!"

Layin back in the cut
Sprayin Jack in my gut
Feeling hungover and through
Healing done, sober and new
End of the week is here again
And what I need is beer with friends
