was reading the other day election results are often based on the market. If down, challenging party wins, if up...
incumbents win.
Had like an 84% accuracy.

Fall of Prince Fat ( Global Oil Pimps )

long poem , hold still as you read it and see if the gestalt pings decently .

~~~~~ The Fall of Prince Fat ~~~~~~

The lower case
third person singular
with a burning mind

sits in the skull
of a lost soul
missing time

fair weather friend
stops by to wink
a High

the last teardrop
of a crying sky

Sea level dropping
a mile a millennium
drops so slow
you can hardly bare
to feel 'em

Willow Branch sink so low
nerve endings
ran last in the show
first runner up
came around last
would'a been here sooner
but can't move over too fast

can't say what tomorrow
might bring
but in this Pot Luck
it's good to bring anything

Hop Scotch
and hip Irish too
gonna join the Isle of Man
soon as the Brits get laid
and the hoops
are jumped through

Nothin' say's lovin'
like a Sky full of blue
wind will wander
as far as you
want it to

Throne of Isis
sits in a Tomb
while Pharaohs daughter
stands drenched in gloom
asking permission
to dance with the Moon

Pills all popped
and dope all shot
when the beer runs out
your mind starts it's rot

Argue the moment you
begin to spin
down into darkness
wearing Samson's
under Tiger's skin

Argue with torment
as he rakes you in
cashing your welfare
and soaking up Gin

Tomorrow comes
in a Benz
alligator hide
wearing muffs made
of Antelope skins

Turn to find
your back staring
at you
stare right back
best you can do
stare into it's mind
stare all day
only to find
you've stared yourself
into the back of your mind

White Picket fence
on a country lane
serene setting
for a murder
in the rain

Last call for the
Al at the back of the hall
shoveling dishes
stacking them tall

Al whistles at
the girl on a Bike
passing him by
to visit her Dike

Al wishes he could compete
with the Tongue of
that Dike Monique
but she's practiced
all of her life
at making off
with a good man's wife

Daisy Yellow colored Sun
where on earth
you shine for some
not for others
and yet for me
what Shines through
the dark
only I can see

Lay the lady
on a Mattress soft and
let the walkers
sooth her with
cookies ,milk
fresh from the farm

lady wakes by sad dreams
and she tilts her eyes to the side

watching as broken hearts
sigh with their screams
while wonder washes up
on the tide

Wonder wanders out
on it's own
never looking back
forgetting about home

Scene of desperation
wall of brick
falling Humpty's
Kings Horses made of tricks
all fall to pieces
when the Dance comes around
Can't Humpty a Dumpty
once he's smashed
on the ground

Lost Future in a minute past
Took sutures to hold the cast
Humpty died on his way
too catch the Gloom
from a Sunny damned day
under a blacked out moon

couldn't have died
none too soon

no, he couldn't have died
under a shiny Moon

He had to die
under that dark
of a Moon
shroud in the Gloom

Cause Light is not
what Humpty was about
when you are that damned
you stay in the dark
and seldom come out

Couldn't have died none too soon

had to die by the dark
of the Moon

~~~~~~~ End ~~~~~~~~~~~~

the Big Fat Humpty Dumpty should have never climbed
up on that Wall ,, for it left the Humpty Vulnerable to
His Big Fat Fall ,,,

I dance with glee over the Fall ,,, because as above says

" Because LIGHT is NOT what Humpty is about "

we've been hammered for 100 years by this greed shït .

Greed-driven strategies, putting all of one's eggs in one basket, and aggressive stock buying is the problem, as this has been, and always will be, an up and down riding-the-waves situation.

I don't share the negativity as found in your narrative. Same shït, different decade.

This is going to stifle the Saudis economy, and possibly start a war.
It's not doing any favors for the petrol dollar either.

With or without Iran, it is the Saudis who have been glutting the market with oil.
If you take a look at shipping over the past weeks ships have left port here in the US and headed to Europe only to turn around two thirds of the way there and return with their cargoes. Most of the ships have been home in their own ports.

Then take a look at the Baltic Dry Index and it was below 400 so that is addressing what is happening with inventories.

Then we have about one and a half quadrillion dollars in the derivatives market with the total global GDP under one hundred trillion all together. damned.gif

China is apparently getting into bed with Iran and the Saudis are not pleased damned.gif

Quote:China is deepening economic engagements with Iran just a week after international sanctions were lifted against the country but the closer ties risk infuriating Saudi Arabia, the mainland's largest oil supplier in the Middle East, analysts say.

Chinese President Xi Jinping, the first international leader to head to Iran after the trade restrictions were removed, capped his visit to Tehran with 17 agreements for cooperation in areas including energy, trade, and industry, reported Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency.

During Xi's visit, the two countries also agreed to increase bilateral trade more than 10-fold to $600 billion in the next decade as China pursues its One Belt One Road project, an ambitious network of road, rail and port routes that will connect China to Central Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.
