Listen to Me

Image by Simone Vom Feld

Don’t speak to me of your spending-spree
Nor your vacation by the sea
Truth, my dear, I fail to see
What reasons for your fanciful glee
The bank’s not going to relent
They’ll charge you double
Their fees will cause you trouble
Paying that will burst your bubble
I ought to spank you hard
Like the time you spray-painted the yard
Listen to me
Shepherd your money, that’s the key

    Ah yes… no matter how much we encourage them to save, they will do what they will! (Some might heed advice – rarely; some, I swear, will do the exact opposite.)
    Well done!
