Mom and Pop investors turn Wall Street on its ear.
A rush on GameStop shares has thrown
the stock exchange into a shambles.
Hedge fund fortunes nearly blown
by novice capitalist gambles.
Traders – those who follow Reddit:
average folks, not financiers –
all coalesced, and then they bet it
would climb into the stratosphere.
Insiders thought to short the stock,
with untold fortunes to be pocketed.
Boy – were they in for a shock
as GameStop’s share price swiftly rocketed.
Amazing – this financial play:
a phoenix rising from the ashes.
All ends well as long as they
get out before this market crashes.
