The Lyrics

I thought Madoff a wizard
And gave him resounding applause.
I heard he earned amazing returns,
If ever returns were earned,
And his high returns eased all my concerns.
This wizard makes portfolios grow
And grow, and grow, and grow, and grow, and grow
Because of the wonderful stuff he knows.
Madoff was such a wizard,
The bountiful new Santa Claus.

Madoff is just a wizard
At breaking a lot of laws.
He had the most clever Ponzi scheme,
If ever a scheme was dreamed.
Because of his scheme, I got myself reamed.
But he will soon find his tail in jail,
In jail, in jail, in jail, in jail, in jail,
Where he’d better watch his wonderful tail.
I’ve lost faith in my wizard;
I’m going back to old Santa Claus.

Good choice for OS; like the Wizard of Oz, it was ll smoke and mirrors.

As Timmy1000 said, inspired choice of OS (and good analogy T!) He'll Bern-ie in Hell. I can only afford to invest $111, but at 15% compounded for 129.55 months, that's $555.

Thanks for the votes and comments. Yes, there are some comparisons between Madoff and the W of O; but, in the end, the W of O redeemed himself.

Martha, I am very, very flattered. Feel free to perform this in your CCC, and I hope it continues to do well.
