Bank shareholders prayer: In God we trust; all others pay cash

As the woes in western banking continue, Euromoney thought it would offer its readers something to salve their wounds as they deal with the underperformance of their financial stocks.

Bank shareholders prayer
Your bank, which trades on Wall Street,

Tarnished is your name,

My cods have been done,

In equities and fixed income,

Give us this day our yearly divi,

And forgive us our stupidity,

As we forgive those who traded sub-prime,

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from junk bonds,

For I am much poorer, the children are hungry, for ever and ever. Amen
