The Buffett

I twice shortchanged Warren one of the two “t”s in Buffett. I found Ogden Nash did a fine job with double letters in "The Lama". That inspired me to write, in apology for slighting Mr. Buffett: The Buffet The one-t buffet, That's a punch,  Or a place to  Have your lunch. The two-t Buffett? He never knew  A fiscal crunch.  And I will bet  A silken tuffet There isn't any Three-t buffettt. * --- Oliver Klosov * The author regrets that he cannot duplicate  Ogden Nash's final “groaner” re a “three-t buffettt” . Pooh. If that's not enough it will have to do. (heh heh)

Thank you Caren. My wife was the serious poet. I just enjoy messing around with wordplay.
