part of my "great recession" experience is in regards to that rather long 1980's recession .. I bought $10,000 worth of AT&T (before the split-up), WGL, Mobil Oil (before the merger), Squibb, Pan Am (my only "turkey") & one share of Berkshire Hathaway ,... now?
after re-investing all dividends, distributions and PAYING the taxes on the cap gains I am one of the very few Multi-Gazillionaire Minor American Poets !
HOW HAS THE GREAT RECESSION AFFECTED YOUR POETRY?
which recession goes with which poem ? I just don't know. I'm still trying to figure out what the hell Language Poetry is !
PLEASE SHARE A POEM(S) ADDRESSING YOUR GREAT RECESSION EXPERIENCE:

now? off to the grocery to buy some "day old" bread (at 1/2 price)
to use for Turkey Stiffing... I already got the turkey at a sale Fifty-Eight cents a pound.
only need 5 days to thaw it out... I got 10 until T-Day. and you know that
a frozen turkey is fresher than a fresh turkey. frozen turkeys are frozen within 5 hours of slaughter
where as the "fresh" birds by the time they get to the grocer are at least 3 weeks old !
actually, at any price, next to hamburger turkeys are the worst garbage one can eat in or out of
