another shrinkage

Trillion Shenanigans

A whole lot of auditors,

the size of a regiment,

are converging on the Pentagon

to look for what is unaccounted for

in trillions of dollars.

I thought so—

what is good for General Bullmoose

is good for everybody

except the Treasury.

It is  no wonder that some records are messed up

considering that some items are impossible

to itemize unless the whole establishment

goes down in shame

because they are foreign in origin.

Not to worry,  people,

the Treasury can always print money

to patch up the holes.

The worry is that the US dollar’s value shrinks

at every event that the Treasury prints money

over and above that value that is redeemable

from the  Federal Gold Reserves.

In fact, the $700 billion that

is budgeted for defense

may only be worth that meagerly

in foreign exchange.

But this will still be worth $700 billion

in local exchange.
