Four and Twenty Assets

Four and twenty assets
Backing every paper
Graded "Triple-A"
'tho lacking pedigree
When they all defaulted
The value flew away
Wasn't that a dainty dish
To set for you and me?

Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her investments
Devalued be as they may
Along came massive lay-offs
Slapped down upon her
And scared Miss Muffet into pulling out her life savings at a mammoth loss so she could afford a handful of fucking curds and whey

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on Wall St.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the Fed's bailouts and all the Fed's pleas for the credit markets to provide liquidity
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty together again

This little piggy worked at [Company Name]
This little piggy got laid off

This little piggy cried: "Oui!" all the way to Normes du Travail
