Economic Reality Cheque Or Check!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Old Lady’s in free fall*
Bourse could well crash*
Dow’s dropped a bundle
Nikkei’s been slashed.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Whining chapped lips
No longer kiss shirts
As grim reality clicks
They set agents to work.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Crocodile tears at finale
Con fans who had travelled for miles
As out of date monickered team garb
Is proffered like sweets to a child.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 On the trek back the fearless were counted
That you’d want by your side in a trench
By time the first team squad had gone round
You came up with three, good reasons for feeling depressed.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Loyal fans save their hard earned
For next seasons brief
Whilst the sides that dropped this term
Cast deadwood adrift.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Inflation free contracts
At thousands a week
Are okay if you bounce back
To The Premier League.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 As a depressed transfer market
Starts bottoming out
Will the parasites stay put or scarper?
Rumour mills are busy, churning answers out now.



The Old Lady mentioned in this poem is not the well known pseudonym for The Juventus club of Turin, but The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street a.k.a The Bank of England. The Bourse is the name given to the French Stock Exchange.
