Original Song Title:
"Things Are Seldom What They Seem"
Parody Song Title:
"Kings Are Held In Bought Esteem"
Kings are held in bought esteem.
Nightmare ends a merry dream.
Highbrow class bear market weathers.
Ponzi schemers plea in tethers.
Very true. So they do.
Black sheep sell investments bold.
All fence sitters hoard their gold.
Stocks turn out to be but dogs.
Bulls are slaughtered, fate of hogs.
So they be, frequently.
Drops the market, stone of mills.
Turbulence ambition kills.
Build derivatives at will;
Bet they're up or down, not still.
Yes, I know. There's much woe.
Though to match your thrift I'm striving,
There's a tipoff -- it's a ripoff.
I don't see just how you're thriving,
Mister Madoff -- Mister Madoff.
Stern convictions for his stealing,
That the S.E.C. is sealing
In oracular revealing.
Yes, I know -- they were slow!
Bought big housing, thought so clever,
Price would rock like that forever:
Once foreclosures filled the air,
Ev'ry knave despoiled his lair.
Very true. So they flew.
Drink is often good as food;
Roils one wild and bares the mood.
Thirsty lambs risk toxic dangers;
Bars surround with many strangers.
Frequently, they're hungry.
Lock of lair then ACORN snatches;
Torn-out fixtures show new scratches;
Loan account the bank then matches;
Pay the loan up, patch the patches.
Yes, wise grow richer so.
Though to catch my drift you're striving,
I'll dissemble -- I'll dissemble;
When you see at what I'm driving,
You will tremble -- you will tremble!
Though a mystic's tone I borrow,
You shall learn the truth sans sorrow;
Steer today and spawn tomorrow.
Now you know what is so!
