Dec

15

 It was 10 days before Christmas, Dec. was soon to expire

We neared the festival of lights, with its eight days of fire

The bulls were dormant, their hubris handily contained

Stocks had collapsed, and crude oil was to be blamed

While visions of dollars, danced in their heads

the bears rejoiced, as the bulls slept in their beds

Dreaming of a sleigh, pulled by many a reindeer

Bulls wondered, if St. Nick would show up this year

One long abruptly awoke, searching for the great man in red

But, found a woman standing there, dressed in blue instead

No one else awoke; there was nary another soul to see

He whispered to himself, Janet Yellen is standing next to me

"Happy Hanukkah", she said as she brushed off some snow

Maybe you were expecting someone else? I just don't know

A fat man named Chris with a sled pulled by many a reindeer

Turned out, PETA complained, and I'm replacing him this year

Thought some charitable work, would be good for my reputation

Hit a few homes here and there, before I go to Miami for vacation

No sliding down chimneys, nor any high flying sleighs in the sky

No reindeer named Rudolph, just a limo with a driver named Sy

With a smile, a wink in her eye, and a tilt in her head

"i'm long chocolate coins covered with gold", she said

I feel your pain; the price of gold is way down there too

Just have faith in the Fed, as she began to fade from view

I know you've been good, not bad; and not naughty, but nice

So no need to pout, that stocks are at such a reduced price

Yet, it's only fitting to give credit, where credit is rightly due

Not to some fat man in red, but the munificent lady in blue.
