Buy Low, Sell High

  1. Buoy Shiloh,
  2. my home, my Maker,
  3. yeomen
  4. city on a hill.
  5. Blue
  6. sky’s the limit, it’s
  7. cyan silo’s airy cupola,
  8. acres of billowy
  9. loam.
  10. Where the wise-high,
  11. birds-eye,
  12. manse-messiah,
  13. binds the word financial
  14. to the word
  15. woe.
  16. We are borrowed vessels,
  17. bound by contract,
  18. hounded by bondsmen,
  19. from
  20. up,
  21. up Adirondacks,
  22. to the pit
  23. of deepest despond.
