Sagging towards Obscurity

Sagging Towards Obscurity


Harbouring heaven is roasting reality

Watching the stock market slip through the floor,

Pulling the strings to rescue morality

Weed out the brokers and show them the door.


Seeking White Knights while neck deep in quagmire

Peering through murk as you beaver away,

Is to waste your days in futile endeavour

For that leveraged debt will never now play.


Private equity partners are history my friend

Lost in the gloom of that passing grey cloud,

Redness and mauve in debt equity ratios

That funeral music is dreadfully loud.


Walking away is a fantasy brother

Shedding the pinstripe is losing the plot,

Restructure the business and inflate the values

Sadly rose tinted glasses are now all that you’ve got.
