Treasure Island

Rising Sun - Falling Pun


A crisis for Japanese banks.
Oregami Bank had to fold.
Karate Bank has chopped its ranks.
Karaoke Bank quickly sold,
But it had to go for a song.
Sumi Bank wrestled with the fact
That it landed belly up wrong.
And in a final dying act,
Kamikazi Bank nosedived down.
In fishy cuts to stay afloat,
Sushi Bank got bad mouthed renown,
Making raw deals of slimy note.

It is not clear how, where or when,
Punny money will get the yen.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
