Ms. Muffett Buys Red Hat 'n' Corel

By Raggmopp

Little Ms. Muffett sat on her tuffet
Trading shares of Red Hat 'n' Corel
When along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And said to our Muffett "Well well

It seems, my young lass
That you're now cooking with gas
And the gains that you've made are quite stunning
But it's all of it fluff, just on paper and stuff
With the money I'd advise you be running."

"Oh bug, you're so dumb, just watch this thing hum
There my Red Hat is, crossing 450
I'm on some kinda roll, great wealth is my goal
Man, this Internet stuff is sure nifty."

So our spidery dude so as not to be rude
From our Ms, took his leave, brokenhearted
For he knew through and through that the adage was true
And from her money this fool'd soon be parted.
