(Apologies to Poe)
See the desk piled high with bills-
What a lot of anguish their arrival on me spills!
How they rustle, rustle, rustle,
As I shuffle them around!
After all the fuss and bustle,
Now I really have to hustle
To make sure the cash is found.
For it’s pay, pay, pay,
In a very constant way,
All utilities and charge cards that have financed all our thrills
In the bills, bills, bills, bills, bills, bills, bills
The demanding, the commanding of the bills.
