Eat, Drink, Be Merry - Poem by doug bentley

the billionaire banker
in his glass domed

office tower
will suffer

a heart attack
on the stroke

of luck.

when he wakes
he'll find belly

bitter for he
will be a babe

in rwanda
or north korea.

so, the moral is -
eat, drink, be merry -

for tomorrow
we all die
