Leverage Man–from 2007

I wrote this right after the *last* crash. Maybe someone will find it amusing this time, too. 😉

Leverage Man

Leverage man, leverage man,
Who ya gonna call?
Whatcha gonna do when yer margin falls?
Livin’ on crack, bubbles and balls,
On somebody else’s money.

Betting on lust, deception and lies,
While everyone agrees
It’s incredible what leverage buys
With somebody else’s money

Illusions derived, packaged and sold
Securitized with fraud
Leveraged phantoms painted gold
With somebody else’s money.

Euphoria with every bump
Despair with every slide
Leverage Man, do ya think yer gonna jump?
With somebody else’s money?
