3/30 Secured Transactions Poem I
Skim your bank account:
trace the lines of your money.
Mark on the doorjamb
how it has grown!
Hold all your transactions to your breast, rock them
and secure them;
know what is yours
and how to take it.
If you are giving away interests
whisper in their ears as they leave;
tell them that you love them
and hope they come back
sound and whole.
Promise them you will not default.
is a dirty word on their sheets;
tell them you'll be solvent for them.
Tell them even if you end up with
after-acquired interests or proceeds
it won't make you love them any less.
