Recession Expression

 Flamboyant extravagance now infra dig
High class labels embarrassing
Enormous houses now freezing cold
Investment bankers – hiding the gold
Green philosophies put into action
Recycled living the latest fashion
Anxiety political personal basic
Maximise optimise – the cant of the wise
Expression depression opinions outpour
Anger, betrayal, corruption and more
Mortgage arrears fuel fears of repossession
Government’s reaction – an impotent regression 
Churchmen clinging to their uniforms of history
Vatican keeping church assets a mystery
Emperor’s new clothes glory castles in the air
Expression recession - a very sad affair.

    Liz, I just found this poem of yours on the recession so we are thinking on the same lines. I wrote Shadows in Candlelight which deals with the child abuse in our country. I did not go into the sordid detail, I just addressed the issue. This is a great poem. You have packed in so much - it is such a sad state for all of us. Where do you live? I am in Greystones, Co Wicklow. I am from Waterford originally. xx

    Hey what's a Craic?? and I see you are Irish then. I have a wee bit o' the irish in me, but mostly Welsh. Your poetry style is very unique, Lis. It's very informational but with cool rhymes. Luv, Andrea

    Wonderful prose Liz. It would so interesting to see in the underground vaults at the Vatican. The riches below there are supposed to be unbelievable. They also say that many of the riches belong to Jews from WWII. Thank you for your kind comment >> James
