Economic Indicators

A special news expos’e:
underwear sales appear to be on the rise
the revealing story uncovered
by unmentionable analysts
intimate with the undergarment industry

Industry classics like Hanes and Maidenform
as well as late bloomers are bustling
economists jockeying for exposure
can see through the interlaced anatomy
of an economy getting a push-up

Those shorting stocks
are taking a lower cut
while throngs are stocking up
on sheer speculation
for the foreseeably brief future
