Stimulus Package

Another slightly irreverent poem (if I can call it that!?)

Stimulus Package

I'll payback that loan
and get a new one

Open a savings account
and make a withdrawal

Register my car
and back it into a pole

Dine at an establishment which serves
chilled soup in a shot glass

Buy reams of organic Australian yarn
manufactured in China

Upgrade my bike
so it looks retro

Buy a star
and look for it among the skyscrapers

Fly to Bali
and pose next to the bomb memorial

Build a toilet in Ghana
and put the picture on the fridge.

Thanks soph :) I had doubts about my ability to write poetry with any sort of humour in it, so it's nice to see at least one person thinks it's ok!
