(from William Blake)
And did those words in City speak
not quite mean what they said?
And was this secret place still England
now it’s owned by global inc?
And did the governor, a touch laconic,
look like King Canute and slightly comic.
To put us on our mettle;
We, who are the face of battle.
Bring me my bonus of burning zeros!
Bring me a nod from my manager!
Bring a decent appraisal, o career unfold!
Bring me a car with two steering wheels!
I shall continue to make a million
and control the price of oil per gallon,
while we build a new Jerusalem
where money is without limit.
