Cheeseburger In Paradise

Favorite Line(s):
Tried to amend my carnivorous habit
Made it nearly 70 days
Losing weight without speed, eating sunflower seeds
Drinking lots of carrot juice and soaking up rays
But at night I’d have these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat
Not zucchini fettucini or bulgur wheat
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat
Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on Earth with an onion slice
Not too particular, not too precise
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise

Whatever the future holds, I make you one promise:  I’ll keep at least 99% of my net worth in Berkshire for as long as I am around.  How long will that be?  My model is the loyal Democrat in Fort Wayne who asked to be buried in Chicago so that he could stay active in the party.  To that end, I’ve already selected a “power spot” at the office for my urn.
