Heavenly Orbit [Today's News Poem, February 17, 2011]
Watchfulness over the money—count on it.
Count on the yellow to follow currency
Eying the movements with starved intensity.
Eagles in vacuums and dragons orbiting;
Followed by samurais, bears and elephants,
All of them calculate loss and victory
Misunderstanding us, using decimal
Ranks, to enumerate power—nothing else
Matters to stars or to nations, businesses,
Poets—we seek constellation, worshiping,
Hoping for worship to spare us loneliness.
"The chairman of the Federal Reserve said Thursday that the financial system is better off than it was two years ago, and that the central bank has learned the lessons of not providing rigorous enough oversight of banks leading up to the 2008 financial crisis. "
