All Credit Valid

January 19, 1993|By Mel Tansill

The C&P bill sits on our kitchen table atop the Master Card bill atop the Spiegel bill

atop the State Farm bill atop the BG&E bill

They sit atop the Barnes & Noble bill atop the Lears bill

atop the Prudential bill atop the Sinai Hospital bill

atop the Sunpapers bill atop the IOU to my parents

Changing our jobs might be the answer

if money is what matters, which it doesn't

never will as long as we can help it)

So we keep treating our checking account like our love

-- temperamental and passionate -- pushing it to the limit

to feed our simultaneous hunger for pleasure and survival
