The 10 times I called,
you put me on hold
and your second number is only 10 digits.
You reply my texts with "when the transfer hits,"
and only when I mention
Your skin care routine is
pounds and dollars.
Your other names are bills,
yachts, and trills.
You only speak in vacations
and your mother tongue is credit transactions.
You accent-changing has diploma;
any small thing, "I wanna, I'm ‘Ghana’..."
Sade, if I too get small money
I'll speak in tongues and act funny.
My name will change to
"Credit Alert Boo."
