Debt Collection: limerick

There once was a young man from Kent
who earned a lot less than he spent;
when pressed to make good,
he replied, “Well, I should,
but I cannot surrender a cent.”

Another young soul from Sabine
said, “Brother, I know what you mean:
once you start to borrow
against funds tomorrow,
the vultures keep your pockets clean.”

To these two, the loan shark replied,
“Nonpayment I cannot abide;
so let’s end this charade.
Your debts must be paid
or you will feel my thorn in your side.”

“Alas,” said the youths in reply,
“in the face of such wrath, we must fly!”
And in the dark of night,
they started their flight
and haven’t been seen since July.
