Debt is a Cruel Taskmaster

Debt not knows forgiveness, nor mercy.
He demands what he is owed, seeking only the law,
Loving only the law to have him fulfilled
He seeks his own way and has no compassion;
Yet, no one can say he is wrong if one seeks him first
Debt is a cruel taskmaster.
Usury is his even crueler friend,
He is perverse, indulging in the sight of 
Seeing debt's servants slave.

The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7).
