Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Said Russell Crowe to Jay Leno
"I'll fix this economic mess, you know"
Alas, there was no cheer for the nation
Just a mistake in his calculation

There is an email rant circulating that espouses solving the Wall Street "problem" by taking the $85 billion being used to "bail out" AIG and dividing it among an assumed 200 million US mortgage holders, resulting in $425 thousand each to pay off our debts. Your verse explains why this doesn't quite solve the problem!

The problem was with the zeros
at the back and not the front,
for zeros there make such a mess
that the results are an afront.

David: There are those in our government who think that they can print there way out of debt.
