“I’m awful at finances; see?”
Claimed Jean Thripp, as she went on a spree.
Her husband was worse;
Their paychecks, dispersed
(and, while we’re rhyming, disbursed).
Husband, wife resolved nothing, those fiends!

        I think your Thai food may come out better than my poem…I have never written a poem in my life …

    Can I offer a creditable answer?
    Hammering the Master Card?
    Spending with reckless disregard?
    Maxed out the American Express?
    Left cents and penniless?
    Getting sad and depressed
    At high rising interest?
    Wanna be unburdened by debt?
    Live free of onerous debt?
    Here’s my financial tip-
    Give ’em all the snip,
    Rather than swipe it
    It’s more prudent to wipe it.

    If I had known more about finances when I was young it would have helped a lot. Maybe you should write a kids book about it or something. James and the Giant Credit Card Bill.
