More Bull!

Haven't we heard something like this before?

The photograph is worth a laugh--
They're praying at a golden calf?
It might be nice if they'd think twice
And offer it a sacrifice!

The Ba'al Street Journal, in its turn'll
publish all their acts infernal

Hmm... you think The Giver can deliver
And maybe part the Hudson River?
Give a sign that all is fine
And part of His proposed design--

That banks will bail and markets fail
And senators will go to jail
All by God's hand, just as He planned
And these folks just don't understand?

By logic's rules we learned in schools
The best bet is... these folks are fools.

Like one of the devouring gods of old, The Market --aptly embodied in a bull or bear-- must be fed and kept happy under all circumstances. That The Market is not at all displeased by downsizing or a growing income gap, or can be gleeful about the expansion of cigarette sales to Asian young people, should not cause anyone to question its ultimate omniscience. Like Calvin's inscrutable deity, The Market may work in mysterious ways, 'hid from our eyes', but ultimately it knows best.

You win, Ridger--For Halloween, I tried a nice spooky Zombie theme, but your comment is much scarier than my new post!
