Bank Failure Haiku

by Calculated Risk on 2/07/2009 04:36:00 PM

For each bank failure, reader Soylent Green is People has been writing a Haiku.

Here are the ones yesterday ...

From the FDIC: FirstBank Financial Services, McDonough, GA

Georgia on my mind...
First Bank, number seven gone
Still no end in sight.


From the FDIC: Alliance Bank, Culver City, CA

Alliance? With Whom?
F.D.I.C., plus U.S.
Eight In Oh Nine Now.


From the FDIC: County Bank, Merced, California

Mercy for Merced
Trifecta is now complete
A Quinella next?


Very clever. Thanks!
