Zugzwang (In the financial world)

Zugzwang (pronounced tsugzwang) is a chess term derived from German: ZUG
(move) ZWANG (compulsion or obligation).
It is used to describe a position in which a player is reduced to a state of
complete helplessness: He/she is obliged to move but every move only makes their
position more untenable. It is a 'no win' situation.

We've Zugzwang in the financial world
as Corporations crash;
They make major moves to plug the holes,
yet all their hopes are dashed.

Greed at last has caught them out,
there is no exit route:
Every move to rectify this
has robbed them of their loot!

They stem the tide here and there,
but still the floods ensue:
There is no way to plug the gap
no matter what they do!

It's time to route these 'fat cats' out!
Bring legislation in;
before Zugzwang beats us all,
turning our gold to tin!!!
