New Bank Merger

A bank has swallowed up the bank that swallowed up my bank.

It condescends to smaller banks that it will now outrank.

My checkbook must be changed again, I fear.

The branch I was beginning to hold dear

Because it's now familiar, and so near,

Will be well merged, and quickly disappear.

And so again I hardly know which c.e.o. to thank.

A bank has swallowed up the bank that swallowed up my bank.
