Where I Now Invest My Treasured Stock - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You know what you have a lot of?
Self interest!
You know where I now invest my treasured stock?
In bonds with those who have chosen,
To remove folks like you...
From anything they believed had value.
The only thing they had received from you,
Was more of the same.
And this they did not wish to see kept diminished.
That is why you have been determined,
As an ill anyone can afford to keep!
Especially at a sacrifice of one's expense.
