Recession Expression

Written by: Liz Walsh

 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.
