Germans are making the loans
and bankers are hot on their phones.
The message they’re sending
Is ‘Bankruptcies pending
and ‘ware of mad Greeks bearing stones!’

  1. LOL! Okay, actually, it's quite serious. I live here, and um, well, I'm not laughing. But I am at your limerick! ;o)

  2. It's even worse when we hear that America could go the same way!!!! All we can do is laugh and you made us do that.
