Danger in the Mail


You face a danger every day

Of which you may not be aware

It comes benignly in the mail

But I’m telling you, beware


It’s not a toxic powder

Or a poisonous glue

It’s a simple offering

Of easy money, just for you


It may be a simple credit card,

A check to deposit, if you please

But no matter what’s its form

It’s works just like a disease


It sits there on your dresser

Daring you to resist

The use of all that money

But you must desist


The bankers put them in the mail

Applications by the billions

Hoping to lure you into their snare

So they can make their millions


For its easy to borrow money

But so very hard to pay it back

And if you let your guard down

You’ll fall into their trap
