Hedge Funds


The super-rich "entities"
playing in the (Wall) Street
found it too small now they are
fat cats, no longer sleek;

and the hours to play constrained them
so they made a secret pact:
all their names and money secret,
after hours and before tax;

their egregious sins are
"Hedged" against the common need,
when justice exposes them,
government helps them flee.

Say goodbye to Trusts and trust,
to an economy safe from lust;
as the shock engulfs the world,
into the breach all lives are hurled.
