When stock market volatility
moves to Feddish liquidility
then market reliability
morphs to questionable credibility.
Every market indicator
every demographic agitprop maker
every talking-head prognosticator
strokes the now rather than the later.
Boomers approach senility
as Xers court sterility
while millennials forfeit ability
to sustain sustainability.
Couch potatoes cultivate disability
while media props up stability;
Detroit portends inability
of longterm viability.
Just give ’em some assurance
of some systemic SS insurance
so they’ll feel this this crazy occurence
will not exhaust our Yank’ed endurance.
I was born on a postWar morn
before the Viet sheep were shorn,
before the American dream was torn.
Now here I lie forlorn.
