Business Bends

May 8, 1945
V-E Day

The war machine was taking a hit,
Allies were closing out
The European Theater.

All that production…
All the ingenuity…
All those guaranteed contracts…

So they met
In a back room with purpose
To massage the market.

The end of the effort
Would cause a bit of bending
On the part of industry.

Makes me wonder what they
All died for…
