Sight Unseen (standard:poetry, 187 words)

A world economy in crisis; the stock market a roller coaster. What can be done? What will the future bring?...

Before I go 

Before I stay 

I'd like to know 

I have to say: 

To let achievement take thy will 

And each day be that merry still 

To come home with each day ten courses 

To grant each daughter ten fold horses 

But darker may the world then be 

To find out then, you've not yet seen 

The overall, the picture missed 

The essence of a love remiss 

And tarnish all 

Who've gone amiss 

The real prize gone 

And shattered too 

Not held before myself, or you 

But blemishes are nigh unseen 

As coin runs through your fist a'sheen 

And poverty is hardly seen 

And poor are but a go-between 

A people not yet seen before 

Will rise up in ten thousand score 

And beat upon the oak front door 

As never did, and not before 

But heed does not acknowledge this 

And time before had never missed 

And all come down 

And in its quake 

A shattering, but in its wake 

A wave must settle everything 

And in its course, a reckoning 

And cleanse us in all reason being 

The best to come, is sight unseen
