In Walmart's hall, prosperity did bloom,
As commerce rang and hatch'd gains from its womb.
Like Midas, they from necessity reaped,
Where the starving throng and bargain-seekers heaped.

In halls of stone, 'twas a lenders plight,
As borrowing costs reach'd a foreboding height.
Fair Freddie Mac spoke of a chilling gust,
A housing market laid low, in the dust.

The Biden bear, fierce in his governance sweep,
Cast his tariff net upon the deep.
Steel of far-off lands to him shall bow,
Yet the canner's song is soured now.
