Banks? No they weren’t starting with banks. Jimmy was out of his goddamn mind. Start small, a 7-11, maybe a pawn shop on the seedier side of town. But banks? They’ve got alarms, guards, insurance. Banks required finesse, and a plan. That wasn’t exactly Jimmy’s strong suit.

I don’t know how I feel about banks, to be honest. You put money in them, but they end up making money off you with interest and all that…. All the banks are broke now. :(

cloudcry from faraway consoles in the desert stretch between my banks, restoring the river in me lost to drought, doubt, dispair.

the banks have a lot of money and when you want to buy something or just to have your money safe you can leave it there and make an account and when you need it you can go and pick some up the bank is like a mom taking care of your money so you cant make bad use of it.

Banks have our money. They hold it and take care of it while we spend it. We give the bank the power by allowing them to have our souls by signing away our lives, our lives of friends and family, and the the lives of the people of the future.

Banks. I’m not sure how I feel about banks. Obviously, they provide security, but really I think they just take more money than needed. And interest. Don’t even get me started on interests on loans. Now that pisses me. Whatever. Banks will be banks.

Banks are retarded, if you refer to the money controlling mega corporations that run our economy. If you refer to data-banks, or memory banks, or another such reference simply stating a collection of…. complete the sentence, than they are less offensive to me.

They control us, our money, our lives. We are lost without them. We are happier without them. We like them. We hate them. They help us, and hurt us. They manage our lives without us realizing it half the time. They are on our side. They aren’t on our side. Our friends, or are foes? It goes unknown. It depends on who you are, and what you do, I guess.

The banks had eroded with the recent rains, leaving the river ripe with ruddy mud and debris. Where once the clarity of a coursing current had revealed the rocky bottom and its residents, now ran nothing but the murky mess of nature’s excess.

Corrupt, monolithic multi-limbed dragons obsessed with hoarding all of the monopoly money, incapable of seeing the death that they are bringing to themselves with every gasping, lurching step. It’s us or them.

robbing the banks of fate
my pistol shoots off
getting what i want
better now than late
robbing the banks of fate
twisting the destiny
having things go my way
but it really doesn’t sate
robbing the banks of fate
it seemed like fun at first
but life that is too easy
is just not that great!
By Vijayalakshmi URL on 08.13.2012
I hate the banks. They take all of your money and hold it for you sure that’s good I suppose but they’re robbing you in the process. $35 overdraft fees, but not allowing overdraft protection sure that makes tons of sense. Oh well I’m slightly ranting here and I don’t think that was part of the exercise but realistically what else is there to say about banks. They help you buy houses so that’s a useful thing, but at the same time they can also come and take that same said house away from you so it’s kind of a double edged sword. I guess when it comes down to it they are still just a tool of the government to make your life more difficult. Now I have to drag out the time on this thing because I am apparently unable to follow simple instructions. Times up!!

I love the smell of banks .I have heard stories that they are bad but they seem soo sweet and clean like nothing could go wrong
By Henry on 08.13.2012
The banks in the Us are part of the reason that people are so broke. They need to take a little less profit and start cutting rates to help the people. Less profit would help them in the long run.,
By Tammy on 08.13.2012
Going to the bank is always an adventure. I don’t know why but my mother and I end up leaving the bank on the brink of tears due to hysterical laughter. It doesn’t make sense but I love it.
By Kaitlyn on 08.13.2012
She didnt think twice before she measured the bulge in his wallet. Mr. Banks was a premium choice among whores who tipped heavy sums. He just happened to run the Chase bank down the street

Banks, made for the rich, run by the rich, bailed out by the government. Ecomony and governement two

I remember going to alot of banks with my mom when i was younger. they would always have that cheap ass candy. you know the stuff with the gel in the middle. and the “jammy dodgers” (as the doctor would say) cookies. why do they like jell in the middle of sweets so goshdarn much?
By AED URL on 08.13.2012
Banks. Wow, What a word to start me off with. Well. First of all, Banks hold our money. We trust our life, basically, on banking systems. Until the recession hit us hard, we had nothing to loose. All of our cash divided equally until somebody decides to get into debt. Hate them.
By Holly on 08.13.2012
The data banks of my brain were at a deficit. It was a recession of massive proportions. The surrounding brain cells would tell of the catastrophe for decades to come while the outer world suffered the repercussions: utter, dumb silence. Yeah, Laina never really tried to talk to me again. I wouldn’t have either.
But I did, I talked, all the time. I talked to myself. My pencils, desks, the doors in my room. Never teddy bears or anything with eyes though, that was just weird. I practiced my abyssal social serenades on the tone deaf ears of inanimate objects. And slowly, but surely, I learned to communicate without the usual epic fail.

Tyra banks robbed a bank on the bank of the mississippi river. Don’t bank on her finishing though because to be frank, she’s a skank.

Last time he went to the banks was for her birthday. He checked his balance and decided to take out the last 100 dollar bill to buy that pearl necklace she’s had his eyes on for weeks. “$95 is your total. Have a nice day, sir.” He smiled and put the necklace in his pocket, went out of the giftshop just in time to catch the bus. The cemetery wasn’t far, he got there earlier than he expected and laid himself in front of her tombstone along with the necklace. And that was his last gift for her.

Greed and poverty,big business greed and corruption ,sick society
By David rooke URL on 08.13.2012
It’s limitless. The time here. Clock on the wall. Gold rimmed. Gold shoes prattle about in the false silence. What am I even doing here? Part of me, the reckless part that used to wonder about opening a moving car door, wants to rob. Steal. Take everything never mine. But never mind.
By Katie on 08.13.2012
Everytime I put my money in a bank it’s as if it disappears. It quite literally will vanish within the next week. Banks just hold my most precious tool for gaining happiness over the weekend. I love banks, but shit, quit banking on my dime.
By Jacqueline Garcia on 08.13.2012
wow i cant come up with anything. i need to go to the bank to get money to pay for clothes from goodwill and food and a belly button piercing. that’s when you know i’m poor. i like writing good stories and this is just a stupid rambling. i’m disappointed in myself.
By Olivia URL on 08.13.2012
Banks are very important if you want to gain a larger amount of money without doing much. You can open up accounts and shit for the simple purpose of gaining money over the course of a year or two. Its super legit. I bank at fifth third.
By Ballman on 08.13.2012
money people who want money come here often gets robbed people cry here people smile here it is a happy place and a sad place money is stored here people trust others here people lie to others here lots of corruption
By Chandni on 08.13.2012
Banks. Money. People. But maybe its more than that. Maybe its a place so unique and intriguing because people come with trust. They place more trust in this building with strangers and money, than they do in world outside the double doors.
By Dylan Victoria URL on 08.13.2012
Banks are the financial institutions that manage our money, lend us money at the times of need, and also invest our money in risk involving ventures to give us some fixed returns. Banks are vital components in today’s democratic societies.

The dried banks along the ditch turned golden brown in the early morning light. It was Saturday, and I had walked a long way to get here. 2001.
By asavas URL on 08.13.2012
I don’t prefer them, but they somehow keep me more stable than I would be otherwise. Although there was that summer I lived in in Maui where I made more money than I ever had before. I was like a walking ATM. But I saved more than I ever had before…I think it was because I was always losing my money in random places. Under the couch, in my suitcase, aprons…by the time I was packing up to leave for home, wads of money came pouring out of the cracks. I guess my memory is good for something. Better than banks, at least.

Taking all of my money for the next 4 years….seriously…
anyways onto poetry.
Well, you need to bank on the bank next to the bank to bank on someone’s heart.

The financial crises of 2008 was in large part due to the relationship between big banks and the housing market. Apparently the banks inflated the prices of houses due to over loaning to loanees who could not afford to pay for the houses and eventually went into foreclosure.
By Roy Logan on 08.14.2012
going to the bank to get money to use. Money is the reason for many things. We do things for money. Money saves people. Money drives us. It ruins us. Money isn’t as important as it really is.
By Stephanie Alba URL on 08.14.2012
Wow! Banks bring to mind money and the the banks of a river. I want to focus on the the banks of the river and how as a young man the waters used to calm me. I long foe the stillness and the sound of the water flowing by. Where does the water flow to like the thoughts of my mind during meditation?

I sat sprawled on the cool grass, my eyes closed. I dangled my feet over the banks where my toes danced lightly in the icy water. The sun, falling through the dappled leaves was warming my body. It was a strange sensation – to feel the coolness yet the warmth all at once.
By Amimee URL on 08.14.2012
the state of american banking is in disaray due to the short sited effect of individuals who sought massive profits over stability. this is in no way aided by the 1997 decision of clinton to release stocks to be purchased on marign
