Meager Means Getting Leaner

An intolerance tolerated,
With intellectualized debates.
Has create dire conditions for some.
And not all!
Yet stalled is an economy,
That crunches numbers slowing to a crawl.
And limitations to sensations...
Present more temptations it seems.
While those still boasting of having good credit...
Do their best to hide,
Their meager means...
Getting leaner on the scene!

'I demand an explanation!
What do you mean I'm overdrawn?
Do you know who I am?
I want to talk to your manager...
Immediately!
I have never been in this situation!
Never!
Get whoever it is out here!
I want to leave a piece of my mind...
Before I get deficiently impatient.
This is appalling treatment!
I have a Bachelor's degree from Princeton.
And a Master's I've obtained from Yale! '
