swimming with loan sharks

entry picture

from the black market sea's they come

to encircle the island sanctuary you call home

you thinking all things are comfortably above

the water line of misfortune

-oh yeah?

but have you prepared for the tsunamis of emergency?

when you might have no other discredited choice

than to allow the teeth of these payday substituting predators

to sink into and bleed you monetarily dry.

Oh look! 

see how fifteen hundred percentedly fat they grow

while cocking-a-snooted fin at the financial regulators

I really do feel sorry for those who with families to support have no other option than to use this way of alleviating their financial problems.That said many could help their selves by
spending more wisely.A very relatable poem.Thank you.Jemima.
