Mr. No Corruption

I won out over Bono
To run the World Bank
Then Saha she said "Oh No
My job is in the tank"
I placed a few quick calls
To some old friends at State
Diplomacy's all right
Only when it gets you laid

Now it's come back to bite me
My bank life ends too soon
Retirement's come early
I'll leave the end of June
I managed to hang on
Just long enough to lance
The boil I call multi-
Lateral finance

I'm Mr. No Corruption
Top fox in the henyard
Excuse me while I play my
Golden parachute last card.

for Paul Wolfowitz, with apologies to Warren Zevon
