Bubble Blues And Haiku's

With apologies to Jack Kerouac for the title, it's Friday and I have been inspired by all the RE bubble haiku's in the comments lately. Here's one from me and feel free to post your own.

Spider Climb Up Window

Pause In Fear

Drop Like Spider

I know, I know. Let's hear yours!

Sold my house last year and lock up $450K. Invested 40% into foreign currency because I perceived that the worst dilemma will be dollar crashed and the house prices will at least stagnant in that case.

Five months ago, when dollar went down 15 percent compared with other major currencies, I though it will be down another 15 percent, but now I realized that this might not be true anymore.

While Americans take advantage of refi boom, China, Japan and India will not allow Greenspan to refi America again. By way of keep buying Bond via GSE, this will keep dollar strong, and the only option Fed can take is to hike rate. This make AG harder to walk away with clean hands.

A properly constructed haiku
Would look something like this.

To buy or to rent
Chase profits or keep money
That is the question

"You need place to live."
True. But buy, and you also
Need six-figure job.

The emperor has no clothes.
Said the little girl.
Silence said the crowd.
Silence said the sheep.
But the little girl replied.
But the emperor has no clothes.

Push shove grind
buy buy buy
happy sad to be
sad was happy
now see miserry

Ignore the thoughts
inside your head
rush to buy
for soon be dead.

Keep up with me
I have all
be like mine
before the fall

Bubble in our midst,
Ascending to the surface
Waiting to exhale

Hey buyer buyer
Builders falling up above
Music is slowing

Foundations are weak
Grab a seat before they're gone
Save yourself the pain

Growing to the sky
Real estate can never fall
Oh happy future!
