In Honor of Bernie Madoff

In Honor of Bernie Madoff

 

By Elton Camp



Bernie Madoff we should look to with pride

Because he took the greedy rich for a ride



They all shut their eyes so as not to see

That the returns he promised couldn’t be



They weren’t some needy, trusting bunch

But the type that had a three-martini lunch



Who, when the scheme finally fell through,

Acted like, about the scam, they never knew



In the money they made, they took delight

But their avarice finally came back to bite



At the end, good Bernie didn’t even try

To escape what he’d done by telling a lie



“I am guilty, your honor,” is what he said

As he repentantly bowed is old, gray head



In his honor, a statue should be erected

The selfish can see it and be corrected



A petition somebody should begin to circulate

To have Bernie pardoned before it is too late
