Damn the invisible hand,

these disembodied entities unleashed

this transparent fate we embrace

Damn the constructs of our own demise,

this economic voodoo

this blind deference to mystics and seers

Damn the assumptions and expertise

telling us to take our medicine and say "please"

Damn the forecasts, projections and call to arms

to keep the wealth spiraling upwards and beyond

Damn the invisible hand,

this one stop shop

this cure all

this one fix for ills

Damn this lack of vision

Everyone tells me the invisible hand is supposed to fix everything!

And it would be a good name for an indie rock band.

The invisible hand just smacked us all in the face and nobody saw it coming.
