The Bank Of Hearts

I went to the “Bank Of Hearts”
To check up on my account
They said, that 1 was overdrawn
That, l owed a large amount.

The interest rate compounds each day
And wipes out the principal
Looks like I’ll never get ahead
Of this never ending bill.

I’m sending all that I can spare
But it never seems enough
It won’t cover the late charges
And all of that other stuff.

I’m so far behind in payments
The duns say they’ll repossess
And I wonder how I ever
Got myself into this mess.

I could withdraw and skip out
Get away with what I can
Or I could let my love default
And hope that they’d understand.

But., I’m bound by that contract
And someday I’ll get it paid
For, even with all the trouble
The best deal I’ve ever made.

Yo Abe,

Always pay your bills.  If you don't they'll catch up on you from behind, and bite you you know where.

Sad, but a good write!

Shades of old Beppo in Mr. Ende's intuitive novel Momo.
