The Bulls and the Bears

When it comes to the stock market
and the purchasing of shares,
it's the Bulls you really want to chase
and avoid the angry Bears.

The Bulls are on the up-and-up,
the value is on the rise,
no risky venture capitol
to bring a bad surprise.

The Bears are much more shaky,
a receding in the air,
declining on a slippy slope
with loss on every share.

It is not always an easy task
to ascertain which is which,
and when you go and find a Bull
it might then make a switch.

For Bulls and Bears do mingle,
and are subject to much change;
the markets might turn suddenly
and those species rearrange.

So go and seek the mighty Bull
but do so with great care.
Be prepared to lose some cash
to feed a hungry Bear.
