All Meals are Brutal to the Eaten

Looking up the mouse decrees
There’s enough for you and me
The owl declines to nod assent
Knowing soon he’s due the rent
On futures based on clear blue sky
On dividends from cherry pie
He picks his beak with razor talon
Calculates the miles per gallon
Checks the angles by degrees
Then mouse (protesting) does he seize

Being an oblique response to the fucking farce that is "the credit crunch"
