Sears Holdings

O Eddie –

Why hast thou forsaken us?

We believed in baby Berkshire,

And now we are bust.

 

Warren has warned

It’s tough to turn a retailer.

Especially one of third class

That smells of eminent failure.

 

But you had assets

And were squeezing the cash flow.

That money was for us to invest

And, for us, to ring in the dough.

 

Alas, the real estate bubble burst

And, with it, your EBITDA.

It is now time to batton down

So that you may have the last Ha Ha!

 

And, we are rooting for you, Eddie.

We are not mad, we will not stew.

Heck, we may even buy bonds

And pray that SHLD is not your Waterloo!
