    Do you like this original poem?

    Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold!
    The yellow metal has intrinsic value,
    At least that’s what we are told.

    Gary North says it’s so, and he would know.
    He’s the investment guru of LewRockwell.com,
    So it cannot – must not! – be a job of snow. No!

    “A 50% drop in GDP during the first half of 2009.
    Gloom! Doom!” cries Karl Denninger. But why,
    Did he ban from Market Ticker this poem of mine?

    “In coin shops all political truth can be found.”
    So says Jeffrey Tucker. But how does he explain,
    Why our golden investments have all run aground?

    Zounds! $850, $250, $1000 and $700 in thirty years.
    Gold prices are volatile, at least that much is clear,
    I don’t get this dizzy after a whole case of beers!

    Gold bugs claim: They’ve made millions since 1983.
    But they’re living in plywood shacks in northern Idaho.
    Should we believe what they tell us, or what we see?

    In Moses’ time they danced around a golden calf,
    Now Paulistas say, “Gold is money made by God.”
    Not much has changed. What a laugh!
    Is the following quote reckless in the extreme? Then read my 2008 paper about monetary theory:

    You should be banned for that poem...

    If the poem's question is in regards to the historical USD value of gold (adjusted for inflation) then the author is mistaken, it is not "volatile."

    Poetry is for Greek adolescents and 1960's writers.

    Don't forget the emo and goth kids! If it weren't for them buying black construction paper to write their ****ty poetry on stores wouldn't be able to get rid of that crap.

    ONION ,you have your ,"finger on the pulse".How can you be faulted for that? My take is that the idoliters,(money whores )are the only thing wrong with gold ,green back dollars,bonds,investments,loans,exchange rates in general...etc. Fairness would bring back the shine.

    ...I never cared for rhyme. It bores me. So I usually entirely disregard the meaning sadly.
