In South California there was a young man,
Who liked to import plastic toys from Japan.
This man’s name was Bo, and his toys were legion;
All ‘cross his desk stood bright figures gleaming.
Not a cheap hobby, no; that he could not deny,
But every new package brought joy to his eye.
Then one day came the news: Tragedy in Japan!
Earthquakes had ravaged Bo’s toys’ homeland!
“O, what can I do,” cried the man, his mood now quite black.
They’d given him so much, now what could he give back?
Soon the answer came to him, like a bolt from the blue:
He could sell off his toys—though he wondered to who.
Then the money he’d take; send it far ‘cross the sea.
After all, reconstruction could hardly be free.
To part with his toys? A cruel task for Bo.
But assistance was needed, so charity ho.
Now here his toys sit: They wish to help too.
Who will take the next step? Could that person be you?
