Sam Adams worked at Moe's the famous Berkeley store which was opened in the late 50s.

Sam Adams worked
for Moes Book store
In Berkeley, California

Working closely with Mr. Moe
Who was still active
Coming to his store
Everyday even though
he was 85 years old..

Sam Adams had worked there for years
Starting working there
While he was in college
Converting to full-time status
After he graduated.

Sam Adams was the book buyer
For Moe’s and worked with people
All over the city,
Buying new and used books
Keeping up on the ever-changing market

Moe’s was still profitable
Despite the turmoil In the industry.

Moe was going to retire soon
And Sam was going
to take over running the store

And will rename it
Sam Adams’s Moes bookstore
Keeping his name on the business
That had been there since
The late 50’s.

Moes is a Berkeley institution been around for decades. the owner, Moe must be about 85 and still runs the store.
