We’ve come a long way from depression days,
Meandering history like a maze,
Standing then, on cold days, for bread in queues.
Nowadays and despite the nightly news,
We should be thankful in so many ways.
Black Tuesday of Twenty-Nine, a tough phase
As Black Friday should bring back the heydays.
Tents pitched, lines form anew, frenzy ensues.
We’ve come a long way.
What is really sold and who really pays?
Life harnessed in avarice like thick glaze.
In the red, as black devours, a blown fuse
In vivid hearts, brilliant minds would amuse.
One would ponder, if, in this timely haze,
We’ve come a long way?
