Speculation Blues

by HAMMOND GUTHRIE

The bulk of DARPA’s stock and trade
was exposed in yesterday’s papers–
but who wants them?

Homeland (in)Security is a risky speculation.

The terror market might fall-out,
the bottom line might well disappear,
and only the (over)seers of ‘schismet’
will have profited from the remains
trading online predictions of terror
guessing in the dark of DARPA that
encourages the future(s) holders
to bet heavily on themselves–

after all, they know the timetables
