by David S. Pointer

Computerized bankers/accountants

asleep on Exhausted Faith's foldout couch

recruiting worldwide walking dictionaries to the data base
recruiting alphanumeric code stalkers from the classroom
recruiting money supply stock broker blogineers

camo up the international currency

eyes on the exposed principal
ears on the unnoticed interest
mouse mitts on the extra always

ammo down the enemies intelligence

low crawl over large and little economies
carrying a sniper log book

Is there a natural fluctuation to economic extremism
Is there a more sustainable economic exploitation
Is reality a wastewater to be treated with fountain coins

The Financial Ministers of Death need to know to grow
