… losers of us all…

Peter Hunter

 

Power, wealth, and fame - some have it all…

… winners in God's lottery…

the beautiful, the celebrated - the acclaimed…

 

A King perhaps, a president - maybe a boss of all…

a legend perhaps - like Genghis, Cesar… Attila and friends

… thundering, sweeping all before…

 

The world at your feet…

… the millions  - at your door

Great… while it lasts…

… then - desperate to preserve… frantic to survive…

 

… the higher we've flown…

… the further we fall…

inevitably…

…  until death makes losers of  us all…

 

End
