A short lyrical poem. A fictional, satirical and humorous epitaph filled with irony.

Depicting the futility of the many worldly goals some men pursue and with which they can become obsessed. With no discernable benefit. To themselves, the world, the rest of humanity or any of their other fellow human beings, either known or unknown to them. Possibly doing great harm along the way. In this, certainly, God is not pleased.

Realizing, near the end, there is still something more for him to pursue with his typical and great enthusiasm. Though "what?", exactly, he still seeks to discover as it remains unknown to him. Perhaps, forever more.
