Cathartic Realization


Reigning castle queen , east side monopoly
 Eye of the storm, indicators didn't foresee

Creating in the calm with the bull market strong
Building for the affluent where most can't belong

Intensity at first slight , bustling increased breeze
All  imagined, sought out , purchased with ease

Staggering gusts of  hurriedly changing winds 
Filling indecisive designers desires and whims

Fabricatng  shrines built unto themselves
Altering climate, trades scurring like elves

Rumbling thunder,corporate exodus in mass
Properties plummet, exceeds expert forecasts

Turbulence swirling, increased forceful thrust
Complete monument, sticks, tin,wire combust

Lightening illuminates horizons impending disaster
Twin Towers implode, changed skyline thereafter 

Whirlwind of terror, patient, successful stratedgy
Spiraling economy, fiancial and human tragedy

Subprime lending meltdown, screaching decline
Aftermath conditions, nations economy flatlines

Few kingdoms remain, cleansed by the surge
Glimmer of light, rainbows enlightening  purge

Seeds have been sown, with a change of terrain
Cathartic realization, no further longing to reign

I love the pace of this since it pretty much is how it did and how fast it all melted down.
