The Music Man
by R. D. Ashby

  In the film, professor Harold Hill
Made a whole town happy, and they forgave
All, the costumes and instruments, the money
He had taken paid back in the feel good factor.

What the financial world is always about
Is a bright future, promises, the extension
Of currency, whose costumes and instruments
Have gilded figures, dazzling would be players.

The professors Harold Hill of the financial world
Whip up the enthusiasm, till promises and currency
like seventy-six trombones in the big parade
With virtuoso thrust lift hopes to the skies.

Even the band leaders of finance are bamboozled
By the counterpoint of promises and currency, never
Distinguishing, till literally the dollars are divested
From the promises, and wipe out the currency.

One investor who lost two million dollars
To Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, claimed that
Like professor Hill 'he made one feel rich' -
Like he felt he had marched in the big brass band!
