Here we have no harbingers,
No hint of what's to come.
We add up all our prophesies,
But cannot find a sum.

It's bad, it's bad - that's all we know.
We've spent our legacy,
And now must bear ballooning debt
Through poisonous debris.

The engineers and CEOs,
The bankers, brokers, boards,
Accountants and attorneys for
The all-but-knighted lords --

They did all right, those scavengers
Who ravaged lives and lands
To build a rag-tag vessel that
Will go down with all hands.
