goodbye “kenny boy” – god has only good things in store for me

When Ken Lay went on trial, he had the nerve to carry a Bible with him. It was speculated at the time, by myself and others, that his public embrace of the Lord was nothing more than a cynical and self-serving attempt to recreate himself as a man of God in the eyes of the Americans he had previously shit on with some carefree zeal. (My guess is that he got the advice directly from Karl Rove.) It didn’t work though, and Lay was found guilty, I believe, on all counts. No one believed that he was either the innocent, good-natured rube of a figurehead, as he’d also tried to portray himself, or the Christ-like man of faith. Not willing to let it go, however, when he was found guilty, Lay announced, “(God) is in control… He does work all things for good for those who love the Lord.” Well, I guess it didn’t quite work out that way. Ken Lay was found dead today of a massive coronary.

    Now we lay Lay down to sleep.
    We pray some lord his soul to keep.
    But through the cries left in his wake,
    we rest assured, Ken’s not awake.

    Rosesd are red
    And violets blue.

    Satan’s coming for you.

    Although dancing on graves usually seems wrong, I’m irresistably drawn in by the beautiful poetry.

    Bad man Lay is dead
    How can we profit from this?
    charge for grave pee-ing

    There once was a minister’s son,
    Who just wasn’t having much fun.
    But with bible in hand,
    some oil and some sand:
    as shill, Ken, created he Enron.

    up the airy mountain,
    down the rushing glen,
    we dare not go a-hunting,
    for fear of little men.

    Rovey is red, Ken Lay is Blue…

    That’s all that I have so far, but I’m confident that the rest will come to me.
