Found Poem: Winter in the Collapse

It’s winter. The ground is as hard as an investment banker’s soul.

An evocative trouvaille. But, in my opinion, it needs a little oomphf.

So I reworked it a little. For your consideration:

It’s winter.
The ground is cold and hard.
An investment banker’s soul.

Original poem entitled: What did you expect, job growth? found at Democratic Underground Stock Market Watch by Po_d Mainiac

      Hi kseverny,
      Me too… I considered just leaving the original. It has a very Haiku flavor.

      Pondering it as Haiku led to the 2nd version.

      Thanks for your comments. Feel free to contribute any trouvaille you might come across.
