Another Custer

As Europeans negotiate their enormous debt crisis, they look longingly across the Atlantic for rescue. But the cavalry is in no condition to rescue anybody, including themselves. If you think the Little Big Horn was bad, wait till you see the blood if Bernanke tries to bail out the EU.



Tectonic plates are moving

Fault lines are being drawn

The fault of course is ours

If Europe has no dawn

With US down to pennies

In our own piggy bank

The Euros now expect us

To walk off that short plank

The bugle calls they’re hearing

Stay distant in the hills

The cavalry’s not moving

That’s just close order drills

So sorry guys we’re broke too

The cav we cannot muster

We know that if we send them

It will be another Custer
