A Debtors Last Laugh

While national debt is reduced
The economy needs a boost
Rules from money gods
Say these goals are at odds
So tough times will be introduced

Always find a way not to pay
Hold on to what’s due till doomsday
These ways and means slow
Show it’s better to owe
And with others money to play

Buy like the devil wears Prada
Lose in Las Vegas Nevada
Then pay back old debts
Without any regrets
As now the dollar’s worth nada
