Wall Street tactics akin to the ones that fostered subprime mortgages in America have worsened the financial crisis shaking Greece and undermining the euro…. One deal created by Goldman Sachs helped obscure billions in debt from the budget overseers in Brussels.   –The New York Times

The Goldman folks said, “Greeks, you’re set:
We’ll show you how to hide your debt–
And quietly, without a fuss.
It worked at home–at least for us.”

In all the world–across the sea
Or in the tropics–could there be
One closed-door shady deal that lacks
Conspirators from Goldman Sachs?
