Automatic Teller Machines
A.T.M.'s what a bind.
More of an inconvenience I could not find.
Went a long way to draw some cash;
Then what did I find amongst the trash?
A torn Twenty Rand note?
Which did not let my pocket bloat!
The number torn off at the left hand top corner;
Did I not realise that the fun was over?
Funny money is worthless you see;
Not to be tendered by you or me.
Who loaded it into the A.T.M.?
......WILL THEY EVER DO THAT AGAIN?
They forced me to drive up and down;
To all the branches in this dismal town.
Trying to retrieve my own hard earned cash.
From amongst the dirt and ash!
Who is accountable let's wait and see;
Till the CEO gets a visit from me!
