A Banker's Lament
No late fees
No accrued interests
No redemption penalties
For you opting out
I will gladly dropp all late charges
To win you back.
I'm a greedy banker
Thought I could compound my interest
Grow richer without you?
But my heart went bankrupt
The moment you closed your account
I've done what no other banker dared to do:
Ransacked every single safe deposit box
Anchored deep within my heart's vault
From all faceted gemstones:
' Red diamonds, blue garnets,
And the one dearest to Mankind
A priceless Jadeite '
Threw all away
Could not bare the thought
That these beauties
Should deserve better safe keeping
Than you the Dearest of all
My one true heart's treasure!
