Meltdown - Poem by Michael Keenan

It only takes a moment
To think of words to write
To make a little comment
And put the world to right!

Who has caused our sudden decline
Not me or my best mate
What ever we do seems just fine
We never get in a state.

Money by the banks is lent
The supply it seems endless
But suddenly where has it went
The situations hop[eless!

Too many loans on a credit card
Many up to their limit
Not realising how very hard
It will be when you repay it!

Mortgage foreclosed, money all gone
And your jobs in jeopardy
The banks no help the cash is done
You must tread ver carefully.

Is Bush or Brown to blame for this
Where is it all going to lead
I know no answer to all of this
Is it down to stockmarket greed?

Men in suits and city slickers
Earn bonuses enormous
Some have almost lost their knickers
For being so gregarious!

The time has come - it is so sad
We really should start to try
The worlds in turmoil - gone quite mad
Only get what you can afford to buy.
