  Danger in the Mail 

You face a danger every day
Of which you may not be aware
It comes benignly in the mail
But I’m telling you, beware

It’s not a toxic powder
A bomb, or poisonous glue
It’s a simple offering
Of easy money, just for you

It may be a simple credit card,
A check to deposit, if you please
But no matter what’s its form
It’s works just like a disease

It sits there on your dresser
Daring you to resist
The use of all that money
But you must desist

The bankers put them in the mail
Applications by the billions
Hoping to lure you into their snare
So they can make their millions

For its easy to borrow money
But so very hard to pay it back
And if you let your guard down
You’ll fall into their trap

Now this is a very bright little write. So many fall into the trap of high interest and endless payments. In spite of using credit cards heavily, I know how to use an amortization table and have made use of this credit over the short-term while never getting trapped in the long. I must say it took some doing though, robbing Peter to pay Paul.
