BENNY HEARS VOICES
Ben, the D0W is gonna crash,
Citi has just run out of cash.
Can you wait 'til this month's end
to give those rates one big bend?
Come in tomorrow with a cut
try to help out this sick DOW mutt.
In order to make it resuscitate,
you need to slash those awful rates.
Never mind about the dreadful buck,
it is dead as a duck and out of luck,
concentrate on all those stocks
falling daily on the rocks.
"Who is speaking?" inquires Ben,
"I was trying to nap until ten.
Must I leave my ivory tower,
give up all my bookish power,
imbibe the mud of the street,
try not to step on Cramer's feet?
Is my story a terrible fate,
cutting rates way too late?
Will history put me in the book
as Depression's engineer and cook?
Why did I take this job at all,
it's never up, just fall, fall, fall?
At least I have some GOLD in hand,
I can always run from this land.
Just bought a place on the beach.
I hope it's out of Paulson's reach."
