Sunday Scribblings: Forbidden

All she wanted was an apple.
But being told no, she did it anyway. And they were banished from Eden.
Now, we’ve bailed out corporate lenders, greedy players who were never told no – but encouraged to select the low-hanging fruit, not matter the consequence.
Nobody wanted this. But yet, it happened.
Even when the public said no.
Forbidden fruit, indeed.
(Sigh.)

And I hope they find that their apples are full of worms! Excellent commentary on the current situation.
