Shy scion of top-lawyer dad
And eager mum, young Billy had
His over-compensating teens
Pre-programmed deeply in his genes.
Since first he’d set his infant heart on
Software while at Kindergarten,
Bill was rarely at a loss
With BASIC or with MS-DOS.
As Microsoft’s each-widget-sold
Turned everything he touched to gold.
Yet who could know what hidden care
Would haunt our Web-Club billionaire,
When ceaselessly gazzumping worth
Revealed him Richest Guy on Earth?
What’s left to come, the sober thought is,
For a Midas not yet in his forties?
