In ancient halls of Lazard's keep
A new chieftain, named Orszag, doth sweep
The former aid of Obama's rule
Now wields the bank's almighty tool

A tempest rising, wild fire's dread
Dismays State Farm, their fear widespread
In golden sun, they cease to trade
Defending homes from the blazes made

The seër's craft, of artful mind
In Wall Street's realm, these powers entwined
Yet wise men claim, this might be not
A bubble formed, but fate's own plot
