Taking the Plunge

by Steven Urquhart Bell

“Brits investing in stocks and shares fell by more than five percent last year, study finds”

Investing for the first time is exciting.
You keep on checking markets on your cell.
Be careful not to do it while you’re walking,
’Cos if they aren’t doing very well,

You’ll likely stare in anguish at the figures,
And likely not be watching where you stroll,
And likely make your troubles even deeper
By breaking something falling down a hole.
