How long


How long can this keep going on?

How long can they keep up the con. 


Money becoming worthless, 


Inflating their demise 


The poor suffer first 


That's no surprise. 


But everyone keeps chugging along,


Thinking we're right, singing their song.


I thought about my savings 


I could be hurt


I have a few mining stocks 


But their in the dirt!


Everything seems upside down


They rise and fall:


Mere voices make the claim


Black seems white, bad is good,


What's happening to my brain?


I sometimes tune in to the crap


But it will never do.


I'd rather sit here with my thoughts 


And bat them off to you.

    Politics world wide influences money markets. It can turn our savings into zilch. One minute making gains, the next losing it all. You have to be brave to invest in stock markets. I’m not that brave. Yep, savings can depreciate in value . Relatable words here.

      A bright light of recognition shines on your words, mate. Don't let anyone anywhere claim they live in the best country in the world - wherever they are....
