Gold Fever

In the beginning…

mankind sought gold, a precious metal capable of destroying civilizations and creating new one’s from their ashes …

he works tirelessly in his search for gold

the miner willingly take risks and is bold

as his fever for the yellow metal soldifies

he never keeps his eyes off of the prize

but

gold fever turns good men into bad guys

willing to kill and tell numerous lies

it’s glitter

sets hearts a twitter

it’s weights

seals fates

kingdoms fall

big and small

but

men will always lust

for that glittering gold dust

or dream of that mother lode

putting them on a yellow brick road

with luxuries that’ll pave their way

to a better life until their last day

The Season of the Bear

there’s a big bear out there

stalking the stock market

and giving everyone a scare

financial wizards are in despair

millionaires are pulling out their hair

small investors fear losing their share

and there’s financial chaos everywhere

because it’s the season of the bear!
