An old poem but still quite relevant.

  Blackmailed By Banks

The carrot of a free interest rate

Is what the banks use as their bait

And offers of mortgage schemes

Six times your salary

For the house of your dreams

Booking you into a future of debt

Hooking you inside

The negative equity net


A monthly fix to feed

The banks’addiction to greed

And forever craving more

The interest rate forever soars !

Shooting and jacking up

You are now in their claws !

Their borrowing clause


Enslaved in slave wage slavery

Anxiety and sleepless nights

Drain the life-force out of you

Or worse,

Robbed of your job because

Of the credit crunch curse


There is nothing you can do

You cannot fight or take them on

For they are stubborn and too strong

And will NOT negotiate with you

They don’t have to -

- for they are never wrong !

Just read the small print,

Small and long


And if you do not pay

And on the right day

They will penalize you

With a penalty pay

Or post blood red letters

Boasting threats and more


While bullying bailiffs

Come a-banging on your door

To take your furniture, your bed

And the auction hammer

Bangs down

For the roof over your head

Very wise and to think this all happened because the banks were strong armed by the government...

Be always safe,

These are apt and timely thoughts, Jane. Sad but very true. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Reviewed by Mary Lacey, Desertrat
What a sad commentary on the way things are. May we soon get out of this mess, and not be bullied by banks.
