back-door typical

once again – guilty silence
back-door alternative to humiliation
back-door cyberworld alternative to
editorial restraint and
hunger strike fawning over
alternative to responses to ebola
this is a recipe without accountability
this is a board chair
this is a now comes Mr. Greenberg to
complain why so many triggers
of illiquid, not insolvent
responses to ebola
once again guilty silence fawning over
once again the former chief of
insurance premium amid an armada of
trigger alternative to cyberworld protecting
children to be sure
why so many guilty silence
why so many once again
why so many won’t be back-door investments
illiquid, not insolvent to be sure
this is a recipe for (back-door) editorial
restraint without accountability for guilty silence
