Shine on you crazy Dimon

I really like Paul Kedrosky’s Infectious Greed blog and, in a blaze of
creative psychedelic, 1970s Floydism, he came up with this ode to Jamie:

 

Remember when you came from Banc One, you shone
like the sun.
Shine on  you crazy Dimon.

Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes
in the sky.
Shine on  you crazy Dimon.

You were caught in the crossfire of Joe Lewis and
lockup,
blown on the  legalese.

Come on you target for Hank’s laughter,
come on you raider, you legend,  you banker, and shine!

You reached for Bear’s jugular too soon, you tried
for the moon.
Shine on  you crazy Dimon.

Threatened by shareholders at night, and exposed
in the light.
Shine on  you crazy Dimon.

Well you wore out your welcome with fairness
opinions,
rode on the  legalese.

Come on you trader, you slayer of brokers,
come on you bully, you banker,  you piker, and shine!

 

Goes with Subprime
Rhapsody
and all those
other great banking songs.
