“Thus says the lord of Hosts: The Broad Wall of Babylon
Shall be leveled to the ground, and her high gates shall be burned with fire.
The people labor for nothing and the nations weary themselves only for fire.”
--Jeremiah 51:58, ca. 500 BC
Mother Market Skewed
Bull Bear has fallen from his perch upon his Broad Wall.
He has been dismembered and dispersed as pieces big and small.
Not all of moguls of Mother Market's whores,
Nor all of her bean counting men in scores,
Cannot restore Bull Bruin's stature in the global village,
For he was sundered by MIGA's* pimps that pumped the Ponzi pillage.
Should snorting Bear be Smithed or smithered by a dilettante hand,
Than by the guidance of Adam's invisible one so grand?
What will neutered Babylon Bruin become after his remake is done?
Will he regain his status of Number One?
Should he trust inept paws to bind his wounds
Or self-salve his bruises caused by craven hounds?
None can see the outcome, for 'time wounds all heels'--
A perverse twist of the truth that time's passage is the medicine which heals.
