Limerick Ode To Mourn For Your Money Day

Happy Mourn For Your Money Day! (June 10th) Okay, perhaps happy isn’t quite the right word for it.

Limerick Ode To Mourn For Your Money Day
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Our money has vanished, alas.
Its value each day
Seems to shrink, as we pay
For the sins of the greedy top brass.
