Well somehow I thought I’d written a post earlier in the day saying why I started this blog. It was because I was waiting for Animal Control to call me back regarding the “Dead Raccoon in the Middle of My Yard” (apologies to Randy Newman) and I wanted to comment on dkkday’s blog of today and decided to try this but somehow it didn’t seem to “take” so I’m Starting Over.

For my next trick I’m going to post my most recent “poem” so here goes…I hope.

ODE TO CONVERSATIONS WITH COLLECTORS

YOU KNOW THAT YOUR CREDIT WILL REALLY BE TRASHED?
Of that I am certain but I don’t have the cash.

WE KEEP ADDING INTEREST, WE KEEP ADDING FEES!
Well my bankruptcy lawyer says my case is a breeze.

WE’LL SUE YOU, PURSUE YOU, AND MAKE YOUR LIFE HELL!
I’m already there…you have nothing to sell.

WE’LL TAKE ALL YOUR WAGES!
But I’m self-employed.
WE’LL TAKE ALL YOUR SAVINGS!
Well I wish you joy!

YOUR CAR IS NOW OURS!
Its fifteen years old………
but send out your tow truck
for it cannot be sold

WE’LL FORCE YOU TO SELL YOUR OLD HOME…sweet…sweet…HOME!
After mortgage and taxes there is nothing I own.

For I have not artwork and I have not jewels,
And I have not pensions or savings-YOU FOOLS!

WELL WE JUST WON’T DEAL WITH YOUR PROGRAM YOU SEE!
So then you get not’n ‘CEPT MY BANKRUPTCY!

dru…who is Starting Over
