There's nothing worse than losing your pride
by borrowing money when your wallet is very dry, and like
a thirsty horse that can't run for another mile,
you'll regret it for not having saved enough money to survive!  

I took my gold watch to the Pawn Shop,
and the young man who was six feet tall 
stared at it and exclaimed with a hiccup,
" It's worth a lot of money, pal! " 

" No, I don't want to sell it right now, I just need 
some quick cash to pay parking tickets to avoid a fee! "
I assured him with ample honesty,
but the red-head fellow looked at me
and said earnestly, " It''s a ninety 
day loan...after that there's a penalty!" 

" I'll pay on time !" I promised him as I walked out of the pawn Shop 
with a wallet full of cash...wasn't I happy to have kept my Rolex watch?
