The Cretaceous

Is the euro a dinosaur? Will the asteroid miss the Yucatan and hit Brussels? The Eurozone bids fair to be a thing of the past in twelve months or less, as German taxpayers grow very weary of bailing out a debt-ridden and profligate Europe that has always acted as if they could spend and borrow and grow their debt in any manner they pleased, secure in the knowledge that Germany and the United States, in the person of the International Monetary Fund, would come to the rescue and permit them to continue to live will beyond their means and at the expense of others who actually work. The Euro, as a common European currency, has been a dismal failure. The question is, what happens to the European Union, designed to protect Europe from Germany? That too has been a failure, for Germany has finally won the war, after all these years.



My heavens, goodness gracious

If it isn’t the Cretaceous

Large animals are roaming everywhere

They look like thunder lizards

Golden euros fill their gizzards

And they trample everyone without a care

But look now, see, they’re dying

And it’s not for lack of trying

To stay solvent and upright and in command

But their days they are now numbered

With their balance sheets encumbered

And soon from streams their fossils will be panned

But wither goes the EU

When the euro says I’ll see you

As it will when Germans rise and say no more

We’ll be back to nineteen thirty

And we’ll all get down and dirty

When the German army marches off to war
