Today it is Christmas, it’s time to forget,
The rising foreclosures and national debt,
Don’t think about swaps or about CDOs
Forget “mark-to-model” and new market lows.
Forget Hank, Ben and “Dubbya”, and CNBC,
Forget bailouts and stimulus, forget the Big 3.
Derivatives? Who needs them- forget what they are.
Forget credit crises both here and afar.
That’s stuff’s for tomorrow- forget while you may.
Enjoy food, enjoy family- no cares for today.
It will be there tomorrow, don’t ever you fear,
But Christmas, dear Christmas is just once a year.
So unwrap some presents, have holiday cheer,
Merry Christmas from us and a Happy New Year.
From everyone here at Doom Castle, a very Merry Christmas.
