Lassons’ Limerick: Business Acumen?

 

There was a young Scott from the Highlands

Who wanted to learn business finance

Though it was risky

He started distilling whisky

And formed a distiller’s alliance

 

And things went better than predicted

Although most of his assets were liquid

But because of his fairness

And quality awareness

His tastings made him addicted

 

His revenues were decreasing

And his assets were rapidly ceasing

But using his connections

He changed his directions

And put his distillery up for leasing

 

As chairmain of the distiller’s alliance

He could decide without member defiance

That a common brand

Would come well in hand

So they ended up leasing his appliance

 

And though one might call him a mess

I reluctantly have to confess

That his lack of understanding

Of accounting and commanding

Was counterbalanced with business prowess
