1876: Threads

I’ll pass my ageing neighbours
contained by solidified returns
off pensions & ISAs [all edging
away from brisk punts on stock
market wagers or gold’s allure]
What they hold will keep them
well off until slips & ‘quakes in
alien places cut those tenuous
connections [no more mirages]
Threads will quick-to dissevers
as traders hedge & new viruses
death-rattle their five bar gates
