Basura Cat said her life is very hard,
What would make her happy is a credit card.
She wants to swipe for things she needs,
Like cotton balls, and pumpkin seeds.
“It’s so easy, just pop in my pin and run,
I will buy presents for everyone!”
“There is no limit to what I will buy.
Oh yes, it’s a credit card that I want to try!”
I tried to explain interest rates and fines,
But Basura’s eyes were filled with dollar signs.
She wants a Visa and a MasterCard,
She wants to buy flamingos to put in the yard.
“You want so much, you discontended cat,
To sleep all day, buy on line and get fat.”
Basura laughed and said, “That’s not true,
I’m really just trying to be more like you.”
