Milton Keynes

Two grand economists uniting like fusing hydrogen,
and exploded as quickly apart again.
The younger, Milton Friedman, ran the world to Chile
to invent half–built shopping–centres and military dictators.
The older, John Maynard Keynes, kept to England
to invent stagflation, wine gums,
and birthed their child.
Even today anyone is welcome to
Milton Keynes.

Few people know donkey’s ears later
these two great economists reconciled
and named the baby Depression Brown.
