I think you can bank on getting weird stuff
about banks going bankrupt and times getting rough
in the overall market, an underground stream
of nothing financial being quite what it seemed,
sluggishly flowing, grinding to a halt;
the little man suffers though it’s not his fault
and the rivers of mammon are all running dry
but still people follow without asking why,
dependent as sheep on a landslide they stand
with despair in the heart and a lie in their hand.
