Lone Shark

There's a story in the Bible about Zaccheus. His song goes like this:

Zaccheus was a wee little man, a wee little man was he.
He climbed up in the sycamore tree for Jesus he wanted to see.
As Jesus passed by that day he looked up and saw Zaccheus in the tree and said,
"Zaccheus, come down out of that tree for I am going to your house today. For I'm going to your house to stay."
Zaccheus was a tax collector and hated by all. He loved to cheat the people when he collected the government's taxes. But on this particular day after Jesus dined at his home it says he came to know Jesus and so did his entire family. After his conversion he wanted to pay back all he had stolen from, but more than what he took. Obviously he had become rich from illegal taxes.
On my cruise last year I took a picture of this handmade shark. I would say he looks like a lone shark or is that loan shark. Pretty veracious. Glad he is not a person.
And all this to say I am off to see my accountant to take care of taxes. Finally I am finished for the past year's taxes. Until next time. I will be out this morning taking care of business.
