A man who lives life simply for his own pleasure, disregarding how his actions impacts upon others. He acts like this due to having little to work for in his life, as he already has everything he could wish for.

He was such a fucking liability,
With a lack of knowledge, of sensibility,
Despite great wealth, and so social and economical mobility,
It was his choice, to say fuck it with feist, to live with misery.

And it wasn't just him of who this was inflicted on,
For his family, his friends, had been subject to the long con,
He only did what he did, and did it for so long,
To prove that he could, and that everyone else was wrong.

He cared little for his children or wife and preferred to smoke,
A specimen who lacked such stature as to even be called a bloke,
When on business trips, he simply drank vodka and nonchantly did snort coke,
Another thing, his wife never knew about how often he would toke,
Though in a shaky voice he would deny, til he was shouting, and the neighbours awoke,
They called the police and the door, down, was broke,
But he said fuck it
started a fire, and he sat in arrogance until thick black smoke, did cause him to choke.
