Our products don’t cost much to make
But they are very popular
And they fulfil a basic need,
So they’re sold at a hefty price
Which no one can afford to pay
Unless they take our credit terms
Upon which we charge interest rates
Just higher than inflation.
And that is how the Nation
Remains within our debt.
Then when people get
Behind with their repayments
We offer them another loan
Which is secured against their home.
They use this loan to pay the first,
Yet they are still in hoc to us.
Then they have to replace the goods,
Which have outlived their usefulness.
And so they have to buy some more
With credit terms, just like before.
And that is how we make a mint,
And how we make the public skint.
