Punishment Insured

The door bangs shut as they’re driven away
Millions they made, ninety days they’ll pay
From designer suits at the top of Q Tower
To jump suits at the base of watch towers
Living at the tax payers cost
What is it exactly that they have lost
When they’re released without any pain
On a private jet back to Ukraine?
