As kids we had great funblowing bubbles, then chasing
them ‘till they popped,
even blowing them in
our milk with a straw.
Pa would talk aboutserious things like the
“Stock Market” bubble
and how it ‘burst’ in '29.
Then- - our “Housing” bubble.
I guess the problem isbubbles burst, like ours
did when we were kids.
You’d think we all could
understand this by now.
