... Losers of Us All...

by 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
