BITCOIN’S GONE NOW

Mt Gox, one of the Bitcoin exchanges, is filing for bankruptcy after almost half a billion Bitcoins disappeared, virtual and virtually gone. 

BITCOIN’S GONE NOW
(To tune of, “My Man’s Gone Now,” by George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward, from American folk opera, “Porgy and Bess.”)

Bitcoin’s gone now
Virtual and new it was
Too good to be true it was
All those Bitcoins prized

Bitcoin’s gone now
No one will be spending it
Bankruptcy is ending it
Is anyone surprised?

So virtual
And so contrived

Bitcoin’s gone now
Oh I got in much too late
Someone needs to regulate
It’s time they realized

Bitcoin’s gone now
Almost half-a-bill of it
Think I’ve had my fill of it
Dreams of gold downsized

So virtual
And so contrived

Bitcoin’s gone now
Use to bite coins testing them
Bitcoins would be besting them
It was advertised

Bitcoin’s gone now
For lessons learned I’m thanking it
From now on I’m banking it
Any cash derived
