The Rich Get Richer

So many crooks like old Madoff
From trusting folks they get paid off
The economy fell 
Yet their pockets still swell
and as for me, I am laid off

    I've been thinking of my response to this write for a few weeks now. Big money owns the govment, the church, the banks, the military, the media, and my ass. Perfect!!!!!!

    LImericks are supposed to be funny, but anyway, at least it is a well written one! And we can call it dark humor. VERY clever, and too bad my hubbie is laid off too. DANG. (congratulations)

    That's a hoot, Joe!! Madoff deserves this tribute and the way you described his impact on others should score some big points with John Freeman. Greed is a source of evil. Wishing you success with this highly creative poem! Love, Carolyn

    Hey Joe!! The most rich can't always be the most happy. Madoff was a crook and swindler, but his family is paying the brunt for his folly. It was sad for those who'd lost monies, but sadder still that he hadn't shown any feelings nor compassion. Take care and keep well!! Love, Mikki

    Nice humor and wit on the rich getting richer, Joe
