Wall Street, 2008

Wall Street, 2008

Grin’s promise loot­ed trust and hus­tled many
Gilt scams on fun’s install­ment plan,
Then loaded trust into its minivan
But dropped nicked dime and tar­nished penny,
Torn five. Our firm now wob­bles, teeters.
I scour want ads, hunt for hon­est leaders.

–David D. Horowitz
