Bernanke on the Hill

September 21, 2007 – Comments (3)

Inspired by poetry on the HG:Philosophy board:

 

 

Oh somewhere there's a happy place where credit markets shine

Loans are made responsibly and always paid on time

Credit assigning agencies wouldn't overestimate

The quality of the CDOs their analysts must rate

 

Leverage is applied with care and never overextended

For fear the credit marketplace could then become upended

Hedge funds seek total return to avoid a sudden bear

Pension funds invest conservatively, and with the utmost care

 

But this is not that happy place, and greed can reign supreme

Rules apply sporadically, a credit traders dream

AAA+ can be applied to whatever's on the dockets

Sellers sell most anything, and fees go in their pockets

 

But reality has a funny way of jumping to the fore

And when things get so out of whack, the credit Bear does roar

Those samesuch suits then cry "bailout", their voices growing shrill

But they need not fear insolvency - Ben Bernanke's on the hill

Leverage is applied with care and not overextended

For fear the credit marketplace could then become upended

Hedge funds seek total return to avoid a sudden bear

Pension funds are conservate, invest with utmost care

But this is not that happy place, and greed can reign supreme

Rules apply sporadically, a credit traders dream

AAA+ can be applied to whatever's on the dockets

Sellers sell most anything, the fees go in their pockets

"It's not our fault" you hear the bankers fattened voices shout

But they need not fear insolvency - -

Ben Bernanke's bailed them out!
