The Fall of the Tycoon

Former Enron founder &
CEO Indicted and convicted
of conspiracy & fraud
On May 25, 2006 along
with Jeffrey Skilling
2 1/2 years after
bankruptcy in Dec. 2001

I saw him on the news
He thought he was immune
From ever getting caught
He was a big tycoon

He was the CEO
The leader of so many
But when it came to money
He wanted every penny

He owned a lot of homes
I’m sure he could pay cash
For everything he owned
With money he had stashed

He really didn’t care
About the little guy
He stole their pension funds
Employees wondered why

He needed so much money
More than his workers had
Not caring how he got it
He would do something bad

I’m sure he must have laughed
With many of his friends
The money they had made
They now had much to spend

But when the fun was over
He then was sent to court
The jury found him guilty
I’m happy to report

He should have given thought
Before committing crime
Was money that important
For him to risk jail time
