Spin doctor

Prices are like they say

Birds of prey

They tend to soar

I mean they are not like cattle

You can send Marys

To fetch home.

They are free spirits

Like truant children

Who refuse to turn in

For the night

And carry on killing

At their video game.

You want to have free markets

You have to free prices

When you do that

Things will be volatile

For a short while

Or for a long while

I can't tell the big boys

Chasing big margins

To hold price lines

Look at all those billionaires

Making it to Forbes in droves

The more of them you have

The better we look on the big stage

We have to go exclusive

Before we can become inclusive

We have to leave people behind

Before we can take them on board

I mean you can't become a tiger

If you worry about eating lambs

Remember what the doctor

Told the emperor

'Globalisation is not a painless thing! '

So the moral of the story is

To spin is not to sin

And to lie well is swell

As long as you know what you sell.

    'globalization is not painless'...it is going to be painful to the people who have played with their properties and the currencies to keep up their market and sale able values! houses, food, medicines, health care and the rest should be affordable, otherwise citizens will come out to the street to protest! as their everyday duty with no implication or they come out once and get what they want! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! an interesting poem, Prabhakar!
