Treasure Island

my guide to investing


everybody shaves
so Warren Buffet invests in Gillette;
and every country drinks
so he also buys Coke shares -
which leads me to my own investment strategy

Every human sheds forty thousand
skin cells an hour
That's forty thousand cells times 7 billion humans
each hour-
you listening? -
now that's a lot of dust;
and not to forget the many cultures and nations
that cremate rather than bury
and that releases from each body in the barbecue
1.6 trillion cells of dust -
it's a bloody dusty world, isn't it?
so…I've got it all worked out…
I'm investing in vacuum cleaners…

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
