Diversion For a Thursday Night

And so the Ken Lay/Enron trial begins....

"Kenny Boy" Lay compared to....

Perov's "Portrait of the Merchant Ivan Kamynin" (1872)
(The Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow)

The Ballad of Kenneth Lay*

Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Ken;
A proud CEO, quite a leader among men!
Then one day, with a cadre of his crooks,
He went off to work and started cookin' up the books.

Accounting, that is,
Kickback gold,
Texas greed.

* Think "Beverly Hillbillies" for the tune
