I am a loan shark!

One day, I came up with a can't-miss savings plan.

Every time I swore, I'd put a dollar in the swear can.

 

I cleverly called it my 'Swear Jar Retirement Account',

I figured I swore so much, I'd soon have a goodly amount.

 

I saved 250 dollars in 20 minutes, just like that!

Of course, then I was broke, so right off the bat,

 

I had to take a small little loan, so with interest,

I owed myself enough it wasn't worth it, and the zest

 

of using it was lost, so for incentive, I had to rough myself up,

I cut off my own thumb, but the sight of a bloody stump

 

failed to induce me sufficiently, so I took myself for a little ride,

to open the door and get away, believe me, I tried,

 

but it turns out I'm quite the ruthless pecker when riled.

I went swimming with the fishes, and no missing person report was filed!
