Note: Despite references to this sorry saga, the author affirms that this is a work of fiction.

Good morning, Mr. CEO Sir,
we offer services complete.
We’ll take care of your computers,
and fudge your balance sheet.

We’ll overstate your revenue,
and inflate profits
Thus boosting your share value
in global stock markets.

We’ll find you well-known auditors
to sign off your accounts.
A thumbs-up from their managers
will put to rest all doubts.

Soon you’ll get rewards for sure,
despite such malfeasance.
Trophies and awards galore
for corporate governance.

I trust our varied expertise
gives you confidence.
We’ll take good care of your IT
…and your finances.
