The world as we know it will end!
This warning the Mayans did send
But yes there's still time
After reading this rhyme
To honor Black Friday and spend
Gone is the time to fear any omen
bubbling like a city of fine women
fate never assumes
as bad luck so fumes
the hour has come as life says amen.
Paraphrasing old Albert Einstein,
"Compound interest's man's greatest invention".
But you'll be financially in trouble,
Expecting your buying power to double,
Because he never factored in for inflation.
Candle maker Iva Bentwick's
business couldn't take a trick,
So he changed his name
to one not so lame,
Now business is pretty slick.
alternate last line: Now many candles are being lit.
Self-employed and partner in life
He "hired" some other guy's wife
Making golfing balls
Now he has two holes
My new business ?...Surgical Knives...

The Julian calendar threw
Spring’s equinox path far askew
But Gregory’s shift
Of ten days closed the rift
So Easter eggs roll now on cue
Tough broads with long skirts moving out west,
circling wagons never getting any rest,
now I'm on tv,
wrangling up recipes,
plus sell house wares that are simply the best!
What flies though the air up above
Disguised as a peace seeking dove
For those who've not heard
Drones can send you the bird
From the land of brotherly love
Author's note: Is this really how to win friends and influence people (for the long term)?
There once was a woman named Roxanne
Who had sex with many a fine man
She charged a big fee
And made them agree
To never disclose the business she ran
For Deb's contest...
Once there was man called Diamond, the sardar
a CEO,who takes business well above break-even at deep crisis
Not by selling immovable assets
Nor by selling intellectual property assets
Bloody a talent worth appreciation!
Dragon slaying is a very bad crime
I'll get him off but I won't get a dime
Self defense we will claim
Aint no one else to blame
Wish it was this easy all of the time
For the Dragon slayer contest
Mother Nature being supreme
Who beckons her violent scream?
Blind men lust for cash
Binding her into ash
The dust of kind Eden’s regime
On his business trip, Pete saw burlesque
and daily phoned home from his work desk.
When asked once or twice
if the view there was nice,
he said, “Dear, France is most picturesque!”

Remember those first imports from Japan?
It seems they were all built for a small man.
Well, the times have changed.
Things are rearranged.
Japan’s building them as big as they can.
A study of girls who are cute
These photo layouts are a hoot
For profits created
Issues saluting a swimsuit
A hot opportunity knocks
Buy and sell incoming space rocks
We love asteroids
But are covered by Lloyds
In case our own blocks suffer shocks
There once was a man right at dawn
That took a long whiz on the lawn
Hairy whizzed on the top
Didn't know when he'd stop
Hard to tell who would start to fawn
Just trying to get Hairy to go outside for his business>>>>LOL
Thieves held up the bank to ransom
a tidy profit most handsome.
With no cash inside
they had to decide
to make the people advance some.
Hawaii’s coffee is Kona
Mexico’s beer is Corona
But Tucson loves Stock
And now owns a used Glock
For the gun culture of Arizona
Author's note: News flash--Glocks are now flying off the shelves in Arizona
A person on business from Porlock
stopped by Nether Stowey for to talk
He there spoke with a man
who told him, "Kubla Khan,
but right now he is out on his walk."
When she saw the economy brought
naught but poverty; said Ms Charlotte,
"Let us revitalize;
I can still improvise
a harlot for each empty car lot."
Our politicians to be told what for
Why they continue to take us to war
Is it for the oil and ores
To continue earth sores
Or for conglomerate greed galore
Opportunity's aroma, creative minds perceive
mind in full swing as posts from senses, they receive
efforts swept by short floods
to need a change of methods
thinking impregnated, anew, the mind conceives
There once was a lass from the Bower
Whose fame got her paid by the hour
'Till one Knightly gent
And now she's the one with the power.
The New Year's celebrations are over
Back to business as usual, regain our composure
No more acting like a louse
Being obnoxious around the house
No more excuses for acting like our dog Rover
