Mixed media on paper

The King of Troy at the time of the siege was called Priam, he sits tempted by the gift horse.
We all can be tempted by quick returns on shares, interest rates too good to be true. During the
period of easy credit, I remember walking through shopping malls, the sirens voice wafting on the air, get it now pay later, wee buns as we would say here. But sadly it all had to be paid back,
when the crash occurred, the penny dropped.
