The Rise and Fall of a Currency
When Europe’s currencies were in decline
towards the end of nineteen ninety-nine
the artful German banker Rudolf Fritz
prepared a devious financial blitz.
As he had realized the British Pound
would be forever stable strong and sound
he very cunningly devised a scheme
that acted to fulfil his lifelong dream.
At work his voice turned spiteful and defiant
when he confided to each German client
their economic future would be dark
without the Pfennig and the German Mark.
He said the safest way of getting round
the Euro was to buy the British Pound,
. . .
Although the outcome was quite contradictory
the German press announced it as a victory
. . .
And lately there were rumours that in France
some senior ministers were in a trance
because they’d heard the pleasing golden sound
of this fine money call the ‘New Deutsch Pound’
