Chapter 11 and verse

BBC2\'s Newsnight went for a new take on the financial crisis last week, inviting poet Murray Lachlan Young to come up with an ode to the credit crunch.

Adios then Woolworths
Farewell MFI
Bon voyage the QE2
Now resting in Dubai
Back home the crunch is grinding
The dyno stores must fall
Each day another famous name is driven to the wall
So as winter comes among usAnd thousands face the dole
Whilst Gordon shovels borrowed wedge into his giant hole
What is there to rely on?
Whilst politicians bitch and fight
Well, I suppose one thing is for certain
We know you’re still assured a good old-fashioned kicking if you venture onto Newsnight.
