Pay up...or else.

Please remit your payment promptly
We’re trying to be polite.

 But you’re a deadbeat through and through.
And we’re almost done being nice.
Please remit your payment promptly.
Please pay the piper’s due.
Twenty-four hours and all bets are off.
‘Vinnie’s’ coming after you.
Please remit your payment promptly.
Because…
We’re just about through with please.
And if you know what’s good for you…
And if you want to keep your knees…
Please remit your payment promptly.
Who says the mob is NOT polite?
But manners only go so far…
And paying your bill is quite polite.
And much, much safer for you...

Yikes! Please send me your paypal details so that I can pay up my debt - don't wish to be a deadbeat when Ma Matlock is collecting!
That was very good - but please....send your paypal details.

Be sure to pay up; this guy looks menacing and his threats are too.

Good take on this prompt.

Amazing how many fews there are on the same few words.
