Story of a lucky man

Story of a lucky man

He blinked

as he entered the world

and it already kneeled at his feet

 

He grew in stature and power

Wealth became a companion

Then became a slave

 

He was adored by women

and soon found a real companion

who birthed him an heir

 

He named him after himself

Gave him everything he could desire

but it wouldn’t be enough

 

He aged and grew bored

Returning to his first love and companion

Once again succeeding, he blinked

 

He was working when he was told the news

and buried his son in lavish style

His wife would not recover

 

He signed the divorce in the winter

and retreated behind walls and doors

A self exile from the everyday world

 

He grew old in despair

His looks long since taken

but still the wealth continued and would so even after he had passed.

 

And so he blinked once more.
