Fundamental of Liar Chapter CXLVII: Money Can('t) Buy

I could expand my life span
But I couldn't avoid death
I could order someone else
But I couldn't turn back the time
I could implant my body shape
But I couldn't grow strong muscle
I could force my will
But I couldn't bend the fate
I could win victory
But I couldn't find the satisfaction
I could rule the power
But I couldn't control the world
I could alter the truth
But I couldn't forget the lie
I could make the trust
But I couldn't hold the loyalty
I could escape from punishment
But I couldn't safe from past
I could build a dream house
But I couldn't soundly sleep
I could choose the best
But I couldn't always be lucky
I could live an easy life
But I couldn't fake happiness
I could gain love
But I couldn't feel the warmth
I could fill my desire
But I couldn't buy comfort
I could manipulate science
But I couldn't fight the nature
I could give huge donation
But I couldn't replace the compassion
I could earn the first treatment
But I couldn't survive the disaster
I could spoil my children
But I couldn't raise good attitude
I could pay the bills
But I couldn't forecast future

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
