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 Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
