JON P FROM PARADISO POSTED ME AN ARTICLE OF A REVIEW ABOUT THIS BOOK THIS INSPIRED  SCALPERS POEM TODAY

Scalpers

Years ago the crash was flash

Boys devouring time, clearing trillions on the slack.

Manic manias, on endemic second panic.

Badly timed enterprise prices, a crunch of crispy notes

The times not over; oh not to credit foresight

The lads are back

Chewing up quids in bites not Nandos

 

Rich boys take it up the river

With protected pay-rolled lawyers

Poisoned experts,

back-room wizards, criminal liquidity.

A code of secrecy

Predatory anger rhythms clutched by boardroom junkies.

Bounced back analysis and ineptly collated data.

Max tax ejaculate

Laundering accumulator

 

There will be blood

Letting and hotly contested

Felt in matter blessed.

Scrolled down to the breast plate

Busted belecose and disgusted.

 

Big boys don’t cry

Pockets are burgeoning with cynical criticism

When the chips are down or of the latest design

The colour purple is candles burning for victims

 

Fast car market percentage is grooming eastern children

And farming silicon trading that no one can see

Exploiting technological ability

Sucking the sap from all and sundry

Before the thought has time to manifest

Internet bullying money, put back into arms

To bomb the strip without notice

The irrevocable damage to pride and person

A cause for continuation of disaster

Typical zonal genital disease

From all our simple oozing greed

Strutting menace and controlling anger

Distress tablet popping misery

Ball broken cracked up morality

If I had a hammer

I would eat it

Beat it

Retrieve it and pass it to a teacher of manner
