Poetry: “Bernie Madoff ” (from July 2009) Note: Bernie Madoff was the mastermind of a Ponzi scheme worth billions from about 11 years ago

He made off with our savings

And left us with nil

He lived a life of luxury

And we all paid the bill

He lost people billions

Before he had his fill

Now that he’s gone to prison

He’ll need a different set of skills

He showed few pangs of conscience

For the rotten things he did

I hope his victims

Get back all the money that he hid.

I don’t believe he cried

Til the day that he died.
