Woe, Woe, the FTSE is Down


Faithful honey melon sun
flickers bullion through lazy haze.
But woe, woe, the FTSE is down.

The clouds bring legends to offer,
gods and icons in grey-white grandeur.
But woe, woe, the FTSE is down.

Two-a-penny daisy friends
kiss dewdropp skies and dream.
But woe, woe, the FTSE is down.

The gentle blackbird unlocks her throat;
such timeless ebony love song.
But woe, woe, the FTSE is down.

The sweet world checks her pulse,
ablaze with sugary glow.
But woe, woe, the FTSE is down.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
