One Response to “Bank Failure Number 9”


    NEWSWIRE–A Kansas bank has become the ninth closed by federal regulators this year, amid bad real estate loans and falling housing prices.

    Not dollars or drachma or krona or kips,
    No sheqel or shilling or rand,
    Not ruble or rupee or money in clips:
    No sawbuck, a fifty, a grand.
    Not penning or fenning or guilder or gold,
    No euro or florin or francs,

    What we’re counting today is not bills that will fold,
    But banks.
    Light verse, ripped from the headlines
