    Minor hurricanes:
    Always worse than expected
    With much long-term harm.

    She cares not a whit
    About your gearhead hobbies,
    But your words – watch out.

    Earnings out today.
    They killed volatility.
    Those calls you bought? Ha.

    Your lawn guy vanished.
    Perhaps he was deported?
    That’s the way to bet.

    South Beach Halloween
    Gives the girl-next-door license
    To go out bare-assed.

    But saves water, yay.

    For losing money.

      The scariest words
      Used to be ‘Government help’
      Now they’re ‘Budget Deal’

      Guns and butter deals
      Bad for T-bills but at least
      I had no bitcoins

      We did have tax cuts
      But SALT elimination
      Made it all a wash

      Market ups and downs
      Scrambling around to make sure
      My ass is covered

      Jordan Peterson’s
      YouTube Biblical series:
      Outstanding. Watch it.

      South Beach Halloween Girl:
      Her name is NOT Em.
