Debts Are Like Babies

Debts are like babies—small at first
Crying: ‘Feed me! Feed me, please!
You fill them till their bellies burst,
They suck your marrow to the lees...
But still they grow and grow—mysteriously,
And lead you by the hand to penury!

My thanks to novelist Steven Saylor
for the first line of this nursery rhyme.
