The Man Who Will Never Shine

There once lived a boy by the sea

Who never knew anything but greed

His life would be long and sad

And he always made everyone mad.

He never did anything great with his power.

He wanted only women to deflower.

So when he grew up to be thirty,

his mind was nothing but dirty.

He managed to make all of his money

in ways that were tricky and cunning.

He pictured himself  a grand man.

He even went on to rule a great land

The boy who loved everything shiny,

grew up to be quite a bit whiny.

And now as a powerful ruler

he only learned to be much ruder.

For he never loved anything else.

He only knew how to love himself.
