Rhyme and Rhythm Practice

You buy one house, buy two, buy three

While world sinks into darkness

The taste of blood has got you, spree

Such violent repugnance.

Let’s eat and drink and, ‘morrow, dine,

Full of life’s richest jewels,

Know nothing of the world outside

Swim, sea of money pools

But you forget the suffering

That’s etched within the souls of

So many men who’ve gone without

You’ve reaped their very clothes off

Be sure you will not get away,

Deeds wicked, shallow, stupid

In proof that you’ve already paid,

My lesson here concluded:

For like the annuals that come

And go in just one season

You’re also withered, shriveled up

Soon die, you, like a heathen.

No one will care to speak your fame

No love behind your back, and

Not spare a thought, dead what’s-his-name

concern for you disbanded.
