We’re Fucked

“Almost all of our relationships begin and most of them continue as forms of mutual exploitation, a mental or physical barter, to be terminated when one or both parties run out of goods.” – W. H. Auden

It’s time to face the press, admit mistakes,
Give a full and frank confession:
The financial sector’s completely crippled,
We’re in emotional recession.

The market’s deep in free fall.
Our losses can’t be covered.
The staff have all got lazy,
And the workmanship has suffered.

We’re in the red, the cards are maxed –
We’re going bankrupt, bit by bit,
The exchange rate of our love
Has left me with a deficit.
