Giant Vampire Squid

One hell of a carry to put around you,

Your ears, your face,

All flesh will soon be blessed

With Dollar Calamari/Empire Squid.

A bug bitten son of a trail commission

Hero of friendly, breaking-your-leg, persuasion

Some giant playground to return to later

Performs a ten minute trade with naked option.

When trading, just a feeling he’s just visiting

His pathetic victim

Tied to wheelchair or investment prism.

The prospectus read: that’s for little people.

By lowering you down to depths

Of unimaginable shrimpness

Where they borrow against you

Before you’re eaten.

Stunned by some flash trade

Others deeply impressed

Can help with clarification

By easing the trading of funnies,

Pegging the currency or stress testing unfavourably


If not squid,

A bank that’s on the move with giant tentacle.

Knowing it cannot fail/quite impossible.

The house wins like every best casino.

Monte Carlo or Dead Sea Scroll

It doesn’t matter,

If you have the ace,

You have the hole.
