Taking Stock Of Acrostic Limericks

As I mention from time to time, I love the mental challenge of writing acrostic limericks. So on the first of each month, I eagerly visit Acrostic Only for its latest batch of prompts.

Taking Stock Of Acrostic Limericks

Seems investments are dropping like flies,
Trouncing prices and deals that looked wise.
On Wall Street our shares
Crash and fall down the stairs —
Killed retirement plans on the rise.

    I kind of liked being over here in Romania while all the debt ceiling shenanigans were going down. I could choose when I wanted to read an article about it or listen to an update, instead of drowning in it and feeling my blood pressure constantly rising, rising, rising.

    Are baby Boomers doomed? Most of us played by the rules, and did what was expected. We paid our dues, and now in retirement, all the rules are changing, with their being little we can do about it except…..Vote!
