I envision
That
This time
Next year
December 8-2021
Oslo Børs
Hovedindeksen

Shall have leapt
Over
The 1 000 points
Mark

I’ll be a small player  
In the ensuing
Børsfesten
As right now 
My capital numbers
Aren’t as big
As they once have been
Before

I earn peanuts
When I should be
Grinding peanut butter
In tonnes

Oslo Taxman
Inkasso men
Are
Sniffing
My bottoms
Thinking that
I bathe
In peanut butter oil
When I’m left
With peanut shells
After they’ve plundered  
My wealth   

And then
I see
Sea shells
In my head
I want to be
Fisherman
Swimming
In fish oil
That no debt collector  
Can wipe dry

I want to swim
Like it’s
Said that
They do in
Sunnmøre
Sea food paradise
Western Norway
Where money
Grows
Out in the sea   
For grabs
Each inward stroke
Under water
Assuming
You’ve got the lungs   

I look
With dismay at
Rising numbers[1]
In
USA
Dancing with Covid-19
Having forgotten  
Dances with Wolves

This time
Next week
December 15-2020
I bet that
The number
Shall have soared over
The 300 000 mark

It’s
Not a lotto number
Not a number for
Pre-Christmas jubilation
With
My bank accounts
Suddenly become fat

Like
Burning oil
Running wild
Ferocious
In Texas crude fields  
Covid-19 will have
Killed
A bewildering
Plus-three times
One hundred thousand Americans
This time next week
December 15-2020

I shudder
At the premonition  

And
It ain’t over yet

Blessings-from-God-miracles-man
Of
Repugnant
Slimy
Purgative
Wet kisses
Still don’t get it 

Kiss of death
Acquired a new face
Of
Horror
Throwing feeble
Kicks of a dying horse
Thinking it’s
The alter-ego
Of
The Wall Street Bull

Yet
The bull’s horns
Are broken
Wall Street
Can’t stand the lunacy anymore

The economy is morose
Time’s up
Go home
Inject your disinfectants
Inside your lungs
And disappear
In one minute

300 000 and more souls
Want your flesh
In all its pounds  
Open your bowels
Run
Loser
Run
If you can
