The Credit Crunch in verse, or, "A Banker's Tale"

Big fleas have little fleas
Upon their backs to bite 'em
Little fleas have lesser fleas
And so ad infinitum

And the great fleas themselves
In turn
Have greater fleas to go on
While these again have greater still
And greater still
And so on

- Augustus de Morgan (1806 - 1871)
