FINANCIAL RECKONING DAY
When the smoke of ZIRP and the mirror of QE,
Lead a nation to believe in false prosperity,
When the magic show ends and illusion is revealed,
When the people look around and there’s nothing left to steal,
Will we turn the tv off and finally start to feel?
The American people got the short end of the deal.
Do we have the courage can we find the bravery,
To confront our servitude and escape our slavery?
Quantitative Easing – yes it is so pleasing, To the Wall Street bankers and connected traders,
But for the average Joe who doesn’t really know,
What easing really means it’s only shattered dreams.
We’ve crucified savers on a cross of zero interest rates
Rewarded bad behavior and tempted the financial fates,
We’ve printed so much paper, only one thing left to contemplate,
When the Fed begins to taper, how long will we have to wait,
Before the party’s over and we begin to hyperinflate.
Mobs, Messiahs and markets too,
Empire of Debt - US I Owe U,
There’s really not that much left to say…
Just sitting here on the dock of the bay,
Waiting for financial reckoning day.
