Poem - It's Payback Time
The need of something summons you from rest.
But, inside your pockets is an empty set.
Therefore, no choice but to ask for help
Since there is none from yourself.
To cry for support is alright;
Just make sure to hold on tight.
Someone will come along and sing your song,
But be sure to be ready for the sound of gong.
That red alert will wake you from sleep,
Will wake you up from sleeping so deep.
This supporter of yours may be kind.
But, listen carefully and don’t be blind!
Every penny you receive counts as loan
And someday, you’ll pay it through your bones!
Wake up! Wake up and see the light.
That supporter’s mind is clever, bright.
Nothing is free and to be grasped in a shopping spree.
Yes, someone will help but will buzz like a bee,
Muttering, “I helped you. I helped, didn’t I?”,
Ending with, “Now is the payback time”.
