Henry Blodget and Mary Meeker Saw their stock picks getting weaker

Henry Blodget and Mary Meeker
Saw their stock picks getting weaker,
Kept their mouths shut til the bust
Thus losing not just cash but trust —
Trust that Wall Streets bluest chips
Could be steadfast and call the dips,
Not only tout the short-term wins,
So money might keep flowing in.
Looking back and taking stock,
Their early wisdom was a crock.
The picks that once the world amazed
Became as petrol on a blaze.
Fingers point all round the mess:
VCs, investors and the press.
But analysts with wealth and fame
Deserve just part of all the blame,
For this may be the biggest crime:
We wont believe them til next time.
