Trader’s blues


Марк Шмулевич
I came to work this morning
And I turned on my PC.
Yes, I came to work late this morning
And, I started my PC.
I looked up the quotes,
And what the Hell did I see?
Standard and Poor is down!
Dow Jones is down!
Standard and Poor is down!
Dow Jones is way down!
And NASDAQ, worst of all,
Oh, my God, it is in a free fall.
Experts say it is just the correction
We had to expect.
They insist it is the correction,
But I can’t see why it is correct
That I can’t retire, as planned, next year,
And no time near?
Oh, Lord, can you hear me?
Could you please reverse this trend?
Oh, Lord, please, forgive me,
It cannot really be the end!
Greed may be a sin but it is not a real crime.
I pray, save my portfolio just one more last time, oh, yeah…
You will see – I‘ll sell all the dot.coms
And forget their names.
I promise  – I‘ll never trade the dot.coms,
Let them all burn down in flames.
Companies with solid income, only those will I buy.
And I’ll hold, and hold, and hold, and hold till the day I die.
I woke up this morning,
And my investments all are gone.
I woke up this morning
And my savings all are gone….
