Manhattan's finance sector fortifies
Against the storm surge. Goldman Sachs relies
On stronger dikes than other banks can boast.
Its wall of sandbags has been engineered
To stop more water than could possibly
Approach the building. Thus the risk will be
Contained and limited - not just insured.
For just as tranches rated triple-A
Were chosen to prevent catastrophe
In credit markets, these financial gods
Have calculated all the risk away!
The chances are remote, but if the sea
Roars in could the sand fail?
what are the odds?
