UPPER SIXTH LOAN SHARK
Where did it come from, where's it going?
Upper sixth loan shark, numbers flowing
from the pen that never forgets,
recording ledgers, each-way safe bets.
Fauntleroys and first form f__s, allowances all overspent.
Pater's guilty generosity safely deposited against rainy day.
There's money in those g______ hills.
Interest in sugar-coated bitter pills.
Margins made from Tompkins Minor
float aspirations, nothing finer...
