Poor Chap!

A banker who felt underpaid
Was asked by a friend what he made
“Just a million or three
But I’m worth more you see
For all of the skill I’ve displayed

The bank that I run isn’t bust,
Its fortune not turning to dust
Although, this is funny,
It’s taxpayers’ money
That means I don’t have to adjust!”

The friend with the question stood still
And said to the banker (Named Phil)
“My daughter’s been laid off
Because you’ve been paid off
I guess unarmed robbing’s a skill”
