Watching the Ripples Radiate.
Author: marshalg

Chapter 94
Wot's Round the Bend?















Desperate and deadly

Is how the landscape looks

Creative accounting

Of company books.

Interpretive trawling

In balance sheet lists

And bullshit reporting

To shareholder shits.


Headlines today

Shouted changes of fate

Deepened recession

Crashed to flat line state

The term "Depression"

Expressed in a casual way,

And the stock market lurch

Made the banks all sway.


Jittery brokers

In a jittery town

Frightened investors

Learning to frown,

Everyone's scared

Of a run on the banks

And political dabbling

Is winning no thanks.


Like a wobbling Jelly

Without a base

The financial world

Is an insecure place.

The gnomes are shoring

Up the vault,

Thin pointing fingers

Determining fault.


Where will it go ?

It's hard to say,

Perhaps you should kneel

And start to pray.

No body knows

What's around the bend

But my bet is

A shitty end!
