Rich Man's Intelligence

He knew Corona was round the corner
many did not know
but he had read the news '

Quickly he decided to sell his mansion
for two millions
then he vanished from the scene
not to be seen
he knew
Recession will soon be in
the costs fell to a million .

They moved into their child's
small house
where he suddenly
took ill and died
no one cried
a rich widow left aside
he was cremated in style

In a boat they burned him with coal
the boat towards the distant horizon
on the river did float

The flames surged into the eternal skies
then his memory was only like the twilight
did not many surprise

even those who never saw
the boat
such a boat
ever in their lives

What way to go! And to think he was so smart!

Very much enjoyed this lovedly...

Even though, sad for him. An excellent tale...

Thank you...Teddy

since Jan 21st
when he passed into the passage of time
Then a Broker came to buy his house
offered half the price
So today in 10 minutes
I composed the twilight of human life
Glad you did it like

he was only remembered; as soon as his money was gone, so too, was the memory of him. I bet that his wife took a new lover within the year and his children spent his loot on trinkets. ~ Geez.

I can bet

she instigated him
may be
as too dependent on
was always she
she now in one stroke
got his belly
full of mint jelly
no I'll find
a better hubby
not whole time drunk actually
but he must also be enjoying
games in heaven
no condoms
no restrictions
glad he must be
saved himself of
