the Bellman's Revenge

The Chronicles Of Selig Cartwright, Goldman Sachs Washroom Attendant: Volume I

A Dyspeptic's Guide To Contemporary American Politics (In Verse)

"Nowadays, you can't turn on the TV without some talking head telling you about the economy. Yet, in a world overrun by 'analysts,' only one man has the guts, the brains, and, quite frankly, the poetry to put it all in perspective.That man is Michael Silverstein... Silverstein is a true intellectual." — Gersh Kuntzman, The New York Post

"Few people have found much to laugh about in the stock market this year. Michael Silverstein is the exception. The Bard of the Bourse can find humor in losing money, globalization and stock options." — USA Today

Dyspecptic's Guide to Contemporary Politics art

With markets so edgy today, is there any asset in which you can still have absolute faith? Yes there is. Cash

Cash, Cash,
Wonderful Cash

Stock markets may tumble, bond issues default
Home prices are quirky, they can somersault
Gold’s upward eruptions, they come and they go
Derivative. products, you just never know
Cash, cash, wonderful cash
You can flash it or stash it, there’s no pain with cash.

While its hard to keep track when your assets are many
With cash you can easily count to the penny
It’s liquid as water, its easy to store
It fits in a wallet or under the floor
Cash, cash, wonderful cash
You can flash it or stash it, there’s no pain with cash.

Cash keeps your life simple, its drawbacks are few
All waiters, they love it, all drug dealers, too
This nation’s great leaders appear on its face
There’s Lincoln and Franklin and old Salmon Chase
Cash, cash, wonderful cash
You can flash it or stash it, there’s no pain with cash.

It’s light as a feather, it don’t cost commissions
Unlike credit cards there’s no later remissions
As a gift it is tacky, you may take some flack
But please rest assured, it never comes back
Cash, cash, wonderful cash
You can flash it or stash it, there’s no pain with cash.
