Rich Man, Ponzi Man, Bernie Madoff, Thief. Bernie Madoff, that ball of slime Has done spending time in jail, He's hardly started serving his time For fraud on a madly massive scale. But Bernie's sentence is at expiration. He ripped people off for his own ends, He left a trail of Madoff bad debts behind, He bilked clients and milked dear friends, Every one a poor rube to be robbed blind. So much for his trustworthy reputation. He was sentenced to three lifetimes in clink, Judged deserving of serving 150 years, Time enough to take stock, stop and think... What fresh Hell awaits as Eternity nears? It's time for a soul-searching conversation. Alas, poor Bernie, did he did try to cut a deal? Offer Satan up his soul, or a majority share? But in certain cases that offer holds no appeal, A peep into some hearts shows... nothing there. Any ex-client knows that's no Revelation. As Bernie breathes his last in his lonely cell Does he pray St. Pete swallows his sob story? The ol' silver tongued devil tells a tale so well; Or will Bernie be the richest soul in Purgatory? So ends Bernie's short incarceration. Bernie lived the rich Ponzi scheme dream Now life in a pokey cell is a poor way to live, The debt he owes he knows he'll never redeem, What a pity bankrupt Bernie had only life to give. It's back to the bottom for Bernie if you're into reincarnation.
