Quantitative easing

The following is not about econometrics at all, but due to the fact that a poem of mine about econometrics posted here has been picked up by the Freakonomics column on the New York Times website, I was encouraged by my one of my colleagues to write another one. The challenge was to write a poem about "quantitative easing" - here it is!

Quantitative easing
Is not very pleasing
But I guess it's just what has to be done.

'Cos when your tummy's bunged up
With no movement at all
A little syrup of figs
Can unblock the wall.

So Mr Darling buys gilts
And pumps in some money
But don't you agree
That his eyebrows are funny.
