Limited Suffix Finances Warns Limited Liability

sneaky term PLC was introduced
in 1974 to take out identity suffix Ltd
as prior to 1974 giveaway Limited
warned investors of liability limited

better to hide this term rephrased
even red flag 'public limited company'
PLC can be misplaced hidden identity
here is a snare some public limited

companies our mostly nationalised
concerns can be invisible incorporated
under special legislation stamp applied
escape hole makes companies exempted

from bearing any giveaway identifying suffixes

cross trade Atlantic a PLC becomes a PTC ploy
yes a stiff British PLC 'public limited company'
in the United States has a different name honey
a PTC 'publicly traded companies' investment toy

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
