Interest

I give you ten, you give me twelve

ten what?

ten bucks

but that’s more than you’re parting

don’t need to give it back right now,
next year will do, or make that two,
it’s ‘interest’ we call it

from where do I get two?

make ten do work for you

I’ll try

One year went past and then one more,
then he came back, knocked on the door

I came to get my twelve from you,
the ten of mine, the two from you

I don’t have any anymore,
all ten sent out to work,
and more I borrowed than before,
the same did happen, as with yours,
all went, and none came back

then all you have I take from you
to get back what you owe me

have nothing left worth taking,
as others came before,
have 13 apples, all I own,
take twelve and each will grow

you eat the fruits, inside are seeds,
do what seeds need you doing,
step back and wait and bees will come
and harvest shall not cease

your bucks will not find any doe
on earth, as you well know

Artist's Description

In view of the financial meltdown, repossession, …
pyramid schemes don’t work, we know that,
how can interest work?
Sorry, forgot, we have printers now.
