Soon roaming fees will be no more
An end to mobile bills that soar
With conversations cut off short
By nervous speakers who are caught
Between the need to chat and share
And payments - leaving cupboard bare!
With internet it's hard to know
The exact route of our money flow.
Hard earned, we fight to keep afloat
While out there “somewhere”, Fat Cats gloat.
A sleight of hand – a rapid gain
Too many on the gravy train.
It's old Joe Soap – that's you and me -
Who foot the bill, regretfully
Hidden costs and services to blame
White collar fraud in all but name …
