My brother said, "Take this stock."
So, I did.
It wasn't a matter of ego or id.
We all want to make the right pick.
Invest in America,
And make it stick.
So I begged and borrowed,
And invested my last dime.
Couldn't day trade,
Didn't have the time.
To watch the market all day long,
Buying low and selling short,
For a sing or a song.
That starts over,
The very next day,
Slowly eating your life away.
Had a company I was looking for.
The search didn't score,
But found a company most interesting.
That I decided to give it a try
Had little to invest, but spent it all.
At week's end, it was up 50% overall.
Wish I'd hocked the farm and gave it a whirl.
Hindsight is perfect, after you fall.
