Ode To Bernard Ebbers

"Bernie Ebb, Bernie Ebb,"
the judge he did decree --
"It's okay kid, you're free to go...
Just kidding, you are guilty!"

And so the tale of WorldCom's boss
it seems comes to an end
You started as a milkman,
now you're heading to the penn.

"I don't know tech, I never did!"
We heard poor Bernie cry.
Sure you don't -- and by the way,
them pigs -- they still can't fly.

So Goodbye Bernie and hello SOX,
What is there left to say?
Well, we're the ones now stuck with this thing --
so who's really gotta pay?
