Mintel has been making some checks,
Into continued use of cheques,
And what you see within its blurb,
Is something that might just disturb.
For they have found, I think it’s true,
That people now, including you,
Are choosing mostly every day,
Another means by which to pay.
This other means will not surprise,
You have all seen it with your eyes,
The plastic card as you all know,
Makes easy paying what you owe.
But as you reach your checkout slot,
Take care that things are not too hot,
For while a cheque is cool and svelte,
A plastic card can twist and melt.
