Defying the Ground

HBOS shares went down 42% yesterday and are back up 52% today, according to the news. It reminds me of the following verses:

Up, down, flying around!
Looping the loop and defying the ground!
They’re all frightfully keen,
Those magnificent men in their flying machines.

They can fly upside down with their feet in the air,
They don’t think of danger, they really don’t care.
Newton would think he had made a mistake,
To see those young men and the chances they take.

Those magnificent men in their flying machines,
They go up tiddly up up, they go down tiddly down.
They enchant all the ladies and steal all the scenes,
With their up tiddly up up and their down tiddly down.

I can’t imagine why we aren’t all on for the ride. Come on! It’s fun.

  1. No magnificent women in flying machines then?

    😦

  2. They weren’t going up and down… they flew off into the blue.
