How was it done, how was it done?
A mastermind crime on a global scale
Driving and steering and cold racketeering
A maleficent malignant monstrous whale
Under the cloak of a kind nerdy vegan
A floppy haired friend for investors to join
The new JP Morgan – crypto-Michael Jordan
Pernicious purveyor of make-believe coin
Purest of market manipulation
Pick-pocket vampire and burner of rules
Synthetic assets with multiple facets
Bathing in massive liquidity pools
Trumpeting effective altruism
Generous billionaire wearer of shorts
Ethical wokeness meets investor brokenness
Meets polycule penthouse and bedhopping cohort
Stealing mountains of other people money
In a sociopathic Bahaman ball
Coolly destroying the savings of masses
Whilst answering Biden’s electoral call
And it’s gone daddy, gone daddy, gone daddy gone
But nobody noticed a single damn-thing
Layoffs and playoffs hush-money payoffs
But now the coin’s dropped, hear the fat lady sing
Now watch as the regulators sagely step forward
Creating more fallible fixes and rules
The digital dollar? the end of real money?
Sam Bankman-Fried has delivered the tools
And what of the punters that lost all the money?
What of the mugs at the end of the chain?
Whilst countless paid dramas beset the Bahamas
As always, they will get left out in the rain.
