Nonsense of the day

HBOS and Lloyds-TSB went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some assets and plenty of bad debts
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
Lloyds Bank looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely HBOS! O HBOS my love,
What a beautiful HBOS you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful HBOS you are!"

HBOS said to Lloyds Bank, "You elegant crank!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed in showers, for five thousand hours,
To the land where Gordon Brown reigns
And there in a wood the FSA stood
With a ring at the end of its drains.
Its drains
Its drains,
With a ring at the end of its drains.

"FSA are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?" Said FSA, "I will."
So they took it away and were married next day
By A.Darling who looked rather ill.
They dined on debts and outlandish bets,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They died by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They died by the light of the moon.

With apologies to Edward Lear
