Martin Shkreli, who raised the price of a life-saving drug 5,500 percent, takes the Fifth before a congressional committee. —News reports

Whose smirk enraged us on the telly?
Whose practices are worse than smelly?
Who’s lower than a serpent’s belly?
The pharmagouger Martin Shkreli.

The other pharma chiefs can heed
Where public outcries sometimes lead.
They all devoutly wish that he’d
Placed modest limits on his greed.
