Greece Thumbs Down On Austerity

It is the new Trojan Horse but not delivered to the city of Troy
No this horse is on the global economy to be deployed
No more “beware of Greeks bearing gifts”
Rather "beware of Greeks giving austerity a short shrift"
Greece gives austerity a complete thumbs down
Wants to increase its debt as economy fails to rebound
Free electricity and entitlements that it cannot pay
Defaulting on its debt is an option to come into play
A solution to Greece’s depression the EU cannot forge
Another global economic crisis is about to from this horse disgorge
The scions of Socrates and Plato and Homer cannot tighten the austerity belt another notch
We may as a result be heading into a complete global meltdown botch.
