You-kulele

Go ahead, think of Buffett.  What comes to mind?

Cash… sage… Cherry Coke?

Ever thought of him,

As a ukulele bloke?

 

Great as a player, back in the day,

Cooler as a teacher now they say,

Each lower-income girl he helps,

Always listens, sings, and strums her troubles away.

 

Good lord knows he has $40 bill,

Comes second only to, well, Bill;

Even so, he chose not to buy the ukuleles,

And using a fundraiser instead to fulfill.

 

Great he only bought seventeen Ukuleles,

‘Cause he could have bought a million,

Everyone should treasure what they are given,

A lot like a country to its civilians.

 

Go take charge of your own community,

Can’t just hope for shooting stars,

Engage yourself – do it now!

Apprentice from Buffett’s 4-string guitars.
