A Witch’s Brew

“Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
...For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble...”

- from ‘Macbeth’ by William Shakespeare

Conjuring up an unholy mess
In the UK, Kwarteng and Truss
Unleashed a massive spending spree
While the rich were to escape scot-free
Until markets made one heckuva fuss

British citizens shocked and appalled
To see pension funds face margin calls
Using leverage to goose returns
No wonder the funds got badly burned
How long before another government falls?
