<h1>THE RAPINE BANK</h1>

<center>

***Banks are well known for their consummate ease,
At charging high interest and outrageous fees.
Known too for dubious business practice,
As spiky and harmful as an Arizona cactus.
If you’re having any doubt as to the veracity of this fact,
Look on the internet to see how they act.
Consider the findings of the Banking Royal Commission of Australia,
Any other business, acting thus, would be considered a failure.
Then look to the U.S.A and Europe,
For more bad practice banking dope.
Banks aren’t the friend of the people with hope.
Banks are the friend of Banks with wide greed scope.***


***Greedy Grasper worked for the Rapine Bank,
“Greed is our trademark, rapacity we thank.”
“Our business is grasping money from you,”
“And foreclosure when repayments are overdue!”
“Regard us, indeed, as a true friend,”
“Who will surely treat you badly at beginning and end,”
“Of any relationship we might transpire to arrange,”
“And, if you object, you’ll find us real strange!”
“If you can afford to borrow millions of quid,”
“You’ll enjoy low interest, with a capped lid.”
“But if you’re poor, we’ll take you for a ride,”
“Such is our behaviour, we like the word “snide”.”
“Duplicity,” another favourite word,
The average banker is a deceitful turd!***
