“…the most populated nation on Earth is building houses, districts and cities with no one in them … desolate condos and vacant subdivisions uninhabited for miles and miles and miles and miles.”–Lesley Stahl, 60 Minutes

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble

Empty towers midst the rubble

Waiting for their price to double.

You can see them from the Hubble.


Dollars heaped up to the sky

Greed flies across the ocean

As in Phoenix, so Shanghai:

You leverage emotion.


Never stop or hit the brake

Just keep on smiling smugly

This is the annus of the Snake

What comes out might be ugly.


What goes around will come around

Just ask Tyrannosaurus

Corrections from on high come down

And bring a world of tsuris.
