Letter to my bank - an early version.

Online Letter to my Bank
from Miss Air

What a waste
All my money spent
all gone
what went wrong ?

for today, on the 28th of June
I am into my overdraft
the cost of which
is £ 1 a day -
what a bitch

and soon
all too soon, I’m sure
I am to have a new score
a bad credit rating, a bad credit score

I have already sold all my gold
And all winter I have lived in the cold

while the apr on my credit card
zooms higher and higher
for my bank can accurately be described
as a financial vampire
I sink into a swamp of serious debt
a quagmire, a financial net

and there are other spikes
food and energy hikes
food prices rocket
so we are all out of pocket

I have sold everything
every ring
my fingers are quite bare
I have no rings left to wear
I cut my own hair

I have dropped a dress size
but I am not watching my figure size
I simply can’t afford to eat
yet on the monthly beat
I pay the monthly interest fee
religiously ( and foolishly )

while I go hungry to bed
the mighty bankers' bonus bellies are fed
with financial figures so almighty - crikey ! crikey !

The government is dead to us
it doesn’t want to make a fuss
MP’s are too busy filling their boots
with paid for ‘on expenses’ loot

I will send this poem
to my bank’s press office
I will send this poem
to my bank’s public relations department

but it will do no good
but makes me feel good
to express my fury
and let readers be my jury

And now is the time
if ever is the right time -
to send this poem
out and about online

Oh Jane, there are a lot of us here in the states that are in the same boat. I am on disability because of my heart and at the end of the month I am out of money. But there was a time I had lived on the streets and in the cold of winter with nothing to eat, save for whatever I could find. Banking institutions worldwide are nothing more than financial vampires sucking the financial life's blood from our monetary veins. Do they care if we have an account with them or not? No, they do not care, because they can always get customers. So I keep the minimum amount in my account, and go about my daily routine.

This poem reminded me that worldwide we are all in the same boat. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister, Barbie

It's an interesting stand you take, and the humorous threads you've sewn into this poetic lament reveal, to this reader, that you're not yet ready to throw the towel in. Sounds like you believe in what you do, but fighting against, or trying to garner sympathy from system leviathans is, in most cases, a futile endeavor. Sounds like you need a miracle Miss Air.

A miracle of cash influx, or in your instance, Euro influx, or even of compassion. Good luck! I have pursued the arts since I was 5 years of age and, in certain seasons, made a magnificent amount of money doing so. Coming from a long line of artists and musicians, and me being the only author/poet in over twenty generations, I know beyond shadow that, in order to survive in the ebb and flow of living, artistic types must have another source of income other than just the art. r
