Bailout 2008 - A Poem
Bailout 2008, a poem by David Jeffrey:
Like a bloodied warrior, laying broken and torn.
Like a dying soldier, hopeless and forlorn.
But the blood, it be green, the color of money.
And the soldier is an economy, and it is anything but funny.
Broken are it’s people and shattered are their dreams.
Thanks to the ultra rich and their fool proof schemes.
It is a tragedy with more pain to come.
Finance will be Hell, and their wills will be done.
Editor's Comment Thanks! We didn't really expect to get poetry on this site - but it is finance related so how can we really refuse it?
We are firm believers that the "Masters Of The Universe" in investment banking, private equity and hedge funds will have their tails firmly clipped over this - in due time. Whether that will be in the form of more aggressive legislation or prosecutions for fraud - who can say?
There does however, seem to be a growing level of discontent amongst the general public as they become ever more aware of the form and scale of the situation. This will almost certainly take form in government response.
Sorry to say that the link you provided did not go to a finance site, so we could not include it here.
