A Trial Balloon
"...ode to The Last Shipwreck"
And so we enter into the financial dark
Outside only steel, cement, and welder spark
Ownership can carry its own side effect
Survival in the air sees the last shipwreck
Winners and losers may be a dime a dozen
As financial markets house their own denizen
To ban the show in fear of political unrest
Requires a trial balloon, the pundit's test
Capital releases slow for endeavor productive
To own, but not occupy can be seductive
Is speculation such a bad incurable disease?
Don't forget to say thanks, after a please
Does slow growth really offer low value?
To get a job should somebody just call you?
And what about possible political unrest
Personal trial balloon, conduct your own test
Back at the ranch we've still got one problem
Vacant housing stock, corporate hogs them
And what about that clean water and air
Financial darkness v survival, do they care?
Erect it from scratch to stand empty anew
Multiple units can be a value to a few
Market now, a day of reckoning may come
Send your trial balloon up, rise with the sun
