Goodbye Mathis mate

The anonymous poet of UBS has been moved to add a coda to his famous Christmas 1997 ballad "Bonus in the bin" (Euromoney, March 1998).

Goodbye Mathis mate

They found you out at last

Now you'll learn what it feels like
In the market's icy blast.

And it seems to me

You've lost your job

Bonadurer's in the bin

Fischer and Siciliano

Leave the top a little thin.

But while you're wondering how to spend

The pay-off in your hand

Ospel flies on Solo,

The incredible Teflon man.
