HOUSTON, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- A former technical manager for Enron in Houston is taking his ex-employer to task in a rap song titled, "NRun."

"It's a spin on Enron," Tonsall said of his hip-hop handle. It also stands for "never run."

Thirty-nine-year-old David Tonsall said his CD is being released Dec. 3 -- the second anniversary of the day Enron laid off 4,000 employees, including him, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Tonsall created the CD out of frustration senior Enron executives, such as former Chairman Ken Lay and former CEO Jeff Skilling have yet to go on trial for anything.

"Skilling, going to find you, rain, sleet or snow," some of the lyrics say, the Chronicle said. The line is a possible reference to Skilling's brother, Tommy Skilling, a television weather forecaster in Chicago.

"There's nowhere on earth that you can go ... ready to get you for the Enron scam. Consider yourself a sacrifice for the pipeline workers that gave their lives, maintaining (the) lines that made you rich. When justice comes around you're going to get hit."

Tonsall said the CD cost him $15,000 to produce but Enron cost him $200,000.
