History repeats itself?

"To the Simple Man"

... not necessarily as farce. Interesting poetic reflection upon the current financial crisis: "Know it’s all hogwash, lies perverted, And when these call out: ‘Shoulder arms!’ That somewhere from the ground oil spurted, With dollars soiling the bright colours; That in their banks there’s something rotten, They smelled some moneybags, it looks, Or cooked some scheme, the oily crooks, For higher import tax for cotton."

    Of course, this is elephant in the room. I might make a hefty return on gold when everything goes t1ts up, but I might not have long to enjoy it, if all this mess ends in global war.

    @2 – 🙂 The poem was translated from polish by the way, hence the grammar.

  • Is the elephant reduced life expectancy all round, or highly reduced life expectancy for the wealthy? Two elephants?

  • No, we can’t have this kind of thing on here. Surely we should all be reading Ayn Rands gibberish and believing it!
