The Financial Crisis Poem: Hickory-Dickory-Stocks

Standard

Hickory-Dickory-Dock,
Inflation’s going up,
The Bear has killed the Bull,
And Lehmann Bros. are gul.
Soon the banks will be locked,
Hickory-Dickory-Dock.

Hickory-Dickory-Duck,
Stock market’s run out of luck,
The US announced ‘Bail-Out’,
But we still have our doubts
We know they’ve got no bucks
Hickory-Dickory-Duck.

Hickory-Dickory-Doke,
Now Iceland’s going broke,
And Argentina too,
And so are me and you.
And that’s the story folks,
Hickory-Dickory-Doke.

Hickory-Dickory-Dock,
It’s time to act, not talk.
So folks, pull up your socks,
And go sell all your stocks,
Before they fetch you rocks,
Hickory-Dickory-Dock.

  2. Hickory Dickory Dick,
    This economy thing is making me sick.
    I need to go to Australia,
    Where I’ll have Ice Creams to lick.
    And I need to go there quick,
    Hickory Dickory Dick.

    On a sidee note:

    Australia is one of those countries succesful in mitigating the effects of what is said to be,”The greatest economic crisis after the great depression.”
