Tomorrow’s Dreams

The market doesn’t care
whether your kids are in daycare
or off to college,
could care less
if your car is broken down
or your house payment is late.
It does, however, care what happens
millions of miles away
where armed conflicts,
failing governments
and pandering politicians
wreak havoc
with your monthly budget
and tomorrow’s dreams.

  1. I am watching the market as I read this. So true, so sad.

    (I have relapsed into writing limericks – on political subjects 😦 )
