    Every time I try to get

    Back on my feet

    Watermark being ~

    Just out of reach

    Money acting funny

    Shipwrecked and beached

    Taking all the sail out of my sea

    River getting deeper... :cry:

    Sharks come to eat!

    Flash their greedy pearly

    Smiling white teeth

    Flooding me with promises

    I can not keep,

    Sort of currency

    That circulates

    Me... :grouphug:

    Another good one from 1poet.. very nice. Keep flow #1

    " Once the sharks come to eat

    Flashing greedy pearly white teeth

    Flooding me with promises

    I can not keep "

    Don't you hate when the phone company or gas company try and have you make an additional two week commitment after you just made a substantial payment on the bills.

    I tell them Oh, I will pay , but I can't make you that promise because if I change my mind I would have lied and I may loose your trust. Besides it's not like I wont see you next month. (Then I follow the advice I wrote below.)

    Those sharks try and make you promise anything so they can bleed you faster than neccesary.

    I used to tell my boss, give me my check, so I can cash it, and place the money in my right pocket. Take it out and. Pass it to the left.

    Advice ( I didn't believe for a while ) : pay yourself by cashing the check. Put ten dollars if not a hundred or more each pay period in your bank account. Then watch your circumstances change. :thanks: Mom.
