Life with Credit

You don’t keep track of your credit,

for you don’t realise that from your salary they will debit,

You don’t monitor your expenses that much,

for you don’t think to your house the loan sharks will march,

life with credit!

The loan sharks come knocking at your door,

your heart begins to get sore,

you tell the children to say you’re not there,

about your silly excuses the do not care,

they force themselves in,

to get back their money they are so keen,

life with credit!

You collapse,

what next?

you wake up in hospital and have a relapse,

you open your eyes and the loan sharks are standing next to your bed,

holding a gun to your head,

at that moment you ask yourself:

Why live life with credit, why live life with expense, why oh why?
