Poem about credit card debt
Yo Hercules, go slay the stinking Hydra!
And so he did, bashing lump after lump
of debts that muscled out and split,
every neck stump spurting two more heads
hissing acid in his face—
that’s how it is with finance.
Bash one bill with a credit card
and lo you have doubled the debt
and triggered an exponential threat.
Even Hercules had help:
a nephew cauterized the stumps
and did the sums but hey
Hercules thought ahead.
He dipped his arrows
in the blood of Hydra
toxin for tax
and future combat with the budget.
That’s his retirement plan.
Not sure that even the writer understands this fully, apart from the mood. Poem and drawing by Rachel McAlpine cc by 2.0.

Debt and credit card debt is something we should avoid totally. Great poem
I’m six months into trying to 100% free. Only 12 months to go. Debt is advised by companies but not by me. Great Poem.
I’m slowly working towards paying off my credit card debt. It truly sucks😟
You’re on your way, that’s the thing.
Nicely done. I wonder if every head can place orders over the Internet? That could be a problem.
Ordering tourniquets no doubt.
Great poem and drawing! I am unable to tolerate debt . I think in a previous life I died in a debtor prison.
Mr Mickawber would approve.
Sorry to hear that. Especially if the poem made it worse.
Is it Christmas time? 😉 Great poem.
