Internet Connected Debts



There has been for a few decades,
An ease to sign on that bottom line.
Loans to get.
Depending upon one's demographic.
Or one's acceptable status to have had.
Without it to be questioned,
What amount is requested.
Nor if one's ability,
On agreed terms...
Can pay with interest applied to pay it back.
And the proof of that,
Is seldom shown on signed documents.
To achieve and receive that loan to get.

Economically speaking,
The use of the internet...
Connecting the increase of today's,
Unpaid debts.
Has become more of an excuse,
To blame on others to accuse.
And they are the ones,
Refused credit.
Not because of their work history.
But who they are and where they may live.
In a demographic zone.
Done to disapprove of this.
By those others who sit in positions,
Hoping it wished to discourage...
Anyone who believes,
Cash to have without it attached to status...
Has nothing to do with who gets approved,
To deepen debts.
Over the internet.
Yet...
Show up in person,
To discover they had been rejected!

'Uh...
You are the one who has requested the loan?'

'Yes!
Why have I been denied?'

'Well...
In researching your Ancestry,
We have no evidence or proof...
Your ancestors,
Were either bakers, candlestick makers.
Or the original Native Americans.
That is a requirement we need,
To approve your request.'

'That's...
Preposterous.
I have more cash on hand,
Than I am asking for to borrow.
All I want to do is to establish,
A good credit rating.'

'We don't make the rules.
We just follow them!'

'What sense does that make?'

'None.
None at all.
However...
I can supply you with documents,
As to how to start your own credit union!
Oh...
And here is my name,
Address and home telephone number.
If you might need my assistance.'

'But...
Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest?'

'No.
Not at all.
I am very interested.
In fact,
Call me later tonight around 8pm.'
