No investor or a broker be

In times when future nigh

As postwar doldrums see

Us through 2025



Cash is king, long live its value

Its liquidity, and interest free

When deflation signs can tell you

What your stocky mind can't see

The Dreaded Double Dip





There are few worse fears among the seers who give guidance to The Street,

Than an upward turn they claimed to discern that suddenly beats a retreat.

Then to save their reps, with practiced steps, they quickly do a back flip,

And loudly amend: "This might portend, the dreaded double dip."



Just as camels can have a single hump or be burdened down with two,

Economies sometimes follow a path that resembles a double-u;

And just when you think the worst is behind and profits are set to soar,

The edifice takes another lurch and you’re worse off than before.



I’ve not come by to ruin your day with news of a sad Second Coming;

Indeed, such seer-like word display strikes me as unbecoming.

I’ll only state, that the usual fate, that follows a glimmer-based bubble,

Is a market that trips, and double dips, to clear out its leftover rubble.

The Coming Stock

Market Bubble Burst



I told a friend two years ago

That real estate’s a bubble.

“I know,” he said,” but what the heck,

I’ll scoot before there’s trouble.”

Alas, he stuck around too long,

He wanted to hit top;

Now he sings a pauper’s song,

His losses just won’t stop.



I’m telling you today, my friend,

With stock’s still flying high,

This market’s gonna crash quite soon,

Though I’m not sure just why.

It might be war, or debt, or oil,

The tripper? Take your pick.

I can’t predict exactly but...

I’m saying: “Get out quick.”
