Four Brothers In Business



Each one was a honcho.
Each one was boss.
Four brothers in business banked shortage and loss.

Each one was a rascal.
Each one was a rogue.
Four brothers in business defied truth and vogue.

Each one was a bilker.
Each one was a crook.
Four brothers in business fixed the books and took.

Each one was a phony.
Each one was a fake.
Four brothers in business caused damage and ache.

Each one was a goblin.
Each one was a feint.
Four brothers in business left both stain and taint.

Each one was a cheater.
Each one was a fraud.
Four brothers in business ripped off man and God.
