Once again, its recession, Bear is begging
As the Bull disappeared enriching few with profits
For investing somewhere else for more money
Letting institutions beg for bailouts from treasury
Looting tax payer’s savings – future of the country!
Making citizens frustrated and panicked
Shattering dreams of owning home for family
As Banks rush to foreclose on properties
Delinquent on mortgage in bad economy!
Millions get laid off without much notice
From growing industries
Stealing hard labours of committed employees
Now merely burden under expensive new technologies
That can work best as slaves without worries!
It’s not far –
When people used to generate own economy
Cultivating God given land unspoiled for free
Harvesting in leisure with family
Spending dear resources for military
Protecting gains that empower only private monopoly -
At the cost of citizens, communities, cities and countries.
[Ever wondered why prices of basic commodities rise during recession undermining/insulting scholarly economic theory and renowned economists? Here is the reason:
At the time of stock exchange drops, the FED boss, Ben Bernanke, said to his colleagues: “Buy everything; I shall give you so much money that you will be able to do so. You can get as much as you want. Later, when assets get dearer, you will make dozens of percents whilst you give back a mere few percent, at around the nominal value. We shall declare this program as our joint success.”

Feudal-Capitalist economy needs war related jobs for maintaining apparent prosperity:
“During World War I (1914-1918), thousands of soldiers left for Europe from the Hudson River. New Jersey factories made chemicals. Soldiers trained at Fort Dix. When the Great Depression hit in 1929, factories closed and many lost their jobs. World War II (1939-1945) helped the economy begin to recover. Factories opened to build airplane engines and warships. Electronic and chemical industries expanded greatly during this time”.
[There is no Heaven in the sky! Earth was Heaven when colonialists and their evangelists didn’t convert parts of it as Hell while motivating the slaves work harder to reach a fictitious better place “Heaven = Haven”! End of Monarchy and related colonialisms can re-establish lost Heaven on Earth, a place without borders, class, divisions, and supremacist orders! Kolki]
