The Wealthy Old Man From Kansas

'There was a wealthy old man from Kansas 
Wasn't concerned if he caught the virus 
He was wealthy you could tell
Owned ten rolls of cottonelle
Said If I die "least I've got a clean A. S. S. ".

Tom, The Wealthy Old Man From Kansas, love that title. Could it be that we share in the riches as long as we sustain our humor? "The overwhelming majority of Americans are possessed of two great qualities a sense of humor and a sense of proportion. -Franklin D. Roosevelt

Thank you Susan, yes these are worrying times, quite a lot of events and gatherings cancelled in the UK. I still think the world should have acted sooner, we've had pandemics in the past, the Spanish flu killed over 50 million in 1918. Mankind never learns though. Stay safe. Tom

This is hilarious--laugh out loud kind. Owning ten rolls of cottonelle is definitely wealthy these days. Loved your humor, Tom.
