Indebted

If my heart was a bank
And love was currency
I would now and then currently and chronically
Be financially irresponsible.

Like an inventor with big ideas,
Ones that endeavor to push the boundaries
Of science and culture and government funding,
I sign my pacts and contracts with good intentions
Without ever thinking about how taxing
This next business venture might be.

I invest in stocks that yield no return,
And after every experience I grow a little more prudent
With how I spend myself.

Forgive me if I have become miserly,
If I adopt a bit of Scroogian tactics.
It is not your fault,
And I need no ghosts to haunt me into
Better business practices.

I am my own accountant;
Therefore I am solely accountable.
