The Lyrics

Martha my ears have heard the jeers
And the court parade, I fear
What of justice?
I would like to understand
Have we done all that we could
To punish evil, not the good
You're not OJ
But you're goin' to the can

Martha my eyes
Tell me what's your crime
Are you the prize
Cause I don't think that you're the slime

As I have wandered through the news
I see you'll have to sing the blues
For 5 months, just sitting in a Federal penn.
People do just what they will
Some go free after they kill
I get this feeling
That you'll be okay again

Martha, my eyes
Tell me what's your crime
They say you lied
And that's the reason you'll do time

Martha, my eyes
Tell me what's the crime
Are you the prize
Because I know you're not the slime

Well-paced, topical, not too harsh: i prescribe three 5's for that condition!

How much ya wanna bet that Martha will eventually be even more famous, successful, beloved and wealthy exactly because she spent some time in The Grey-bar Hotel ?

Pauvre Martita.

Like many, I don't like MS, but you raise a good point. She was an easy target, her conviction giving the illusion that white-collar crime is being combatted. True, the cases against Ebbers, Skilling, Lay, and other such vermin, are complex, but these cockroaches will get off with a slap on the wrist, if anything. Fastow's sentence, e.g., is peanuts relative to his crimes.
