The Crumbling Economy

Confusing Times...Anywhere and Everywhere!

Crumbling economy is synonymous to bailout packages, stimulus relief, stress test, job furloughs, lay-offs, rising unemployment, cost-cutting measures, indefinite delays, and you can add your own list of preference. As if this is not depressing enough, be wary of the scavengers lurking in the dark just waiting for a gullible prey.

Who will pick up the pieces when the cookie crumbles? The girl scouts! Who will pick up the pieces when the economy crumbles? CEOs work for free/$1? Pay increases for politicians? Unemployment benefits for the average Joe and Jane? How could Jane justify buying new shoes? Joe is still searching on the computer job boards.

Living Large…Flying High...Who could afford such luxury in this extreme economic downturn? Such uncertainties in our midst! No crystal ball could have ever predicted the depths the greatest economy would plunge, or continue to hurtle into eternity.

Is it better down yonder?

It's just as confusing down here as it is up there.
It's just as confusing down here as it is up there.
There's always someone lurking at the bottom, waiting for its prey.

Blood suckers in our midst...beware it's not draining you at all!
Blood suckers in our midst...beware it's not draining you at all!
One day...you may see some light, or find a greener pasture.
One day...you may see some light, or find a greener pasture.
Even if it's just an elusive dream, or be it an optical illusion...believe for a moment.

For life is a fleeting fancy, and we may never capture it once more!
