Holds No Currency
This south sea bubble augurs badly throughout,
in lieu of which is a journey undeserved,
predictable transactions fall under the radar
all that is fake deserved a burning
Third-party information, what is there to write?
Token investigations drawing a blank page
surreptitious detail crawling under umbrage
out in the wash, a religiously strait exposition.
Wooden features compliment these best actions
crying out for details like someone before
recycling actions for the better results
Confessed to betters in a suspicious gaze.
Thick as the next, rounding up turgid defeats
requiring details of the nefarious stationary
predictable events going off on the scale.
Erstwhile stealing, an anonymous calling
card-carrying idiocy a cause to endeavour.
This silent death of sorts, cleaned out nicely
pressurised containers crash and burn.
Far better advice, debunking the fake
punctual currency a gullible phase
held against, sinning, a culpable scene
strange fruit amassed over a tempting event.
