Ballad of the World Bankers, Short Version

Well we panicked you in 1837,
And depressed you in 1929,
On September 11 we pulled Building 7,
But we really really shafted you in 009.

*       *       *

       Maybe somebody can set this to music!  Make it rollicking, ironic, and full of the ridicule they deserve.  Bye, bye Miss American Pie.

       Additional verses always welcome.  Here's a chance to develop your gallows humor to a high art!


  1. Not much of a poet. But like the idea!
    Chorus should have something, like pillage, plunder and steal. pillage plunder and steal!

  2. Thanks, Susie!
    I, too, was and am a Jesus Person. Early 1970s for me.

  3. An angry man opens his mouth and shuts up his eyes.
