Sir Clive Thompson - a poem

by Margaret Hendry, on behalf of my seventeen workmates who lost £10,000
Issue No. 2028

F is for flaunting, what 'SIR' Clive is doing
    with holidays at such a time
A  is for arrogance, in his appearance
    but he hasn't lost, not a dime
R  is for rubbish, that this man is speaking
    whenever he speaks to the press
E  is for excrement, just one more word
    for excuses he's made for this mess
P  is for pennies, that customers will get
    to 'compensate' their loss of cash
A  is for action, that everyone wants
    no more helpings of his verbal trash
K  is for kindness, that people have shown
    by donating amounts large and small
    But with this fiasco, while we are all rooked
    Dear 'SIR' Clive , hasn't suffered at all!
