Self-made Man


 There once was a man-

Call him Bob-

Who lived on a hill

Far removed from the mob.



“I’m a self-made man”

He would boast in his manor

“And deserve all my wealth,

High status and glamour.



“The schools that I went to

Were built by yours truly

And paid for by money

You demanded so rudely.



“Our whole banking system,

And the laws that protect it,

Were not around

Before I existed.




“The hospital, too,

That restored me to health,

Where would it be

If it weren’t for my wealth?



“And as for the workers

They’d starve in a ditch

If they didn’t have someone

Like me to make rich.



“All the inventions,

The gadgets and science

Are due to my own

Complete self-reliance.”





He lived his own life

And built his own tomb

Even spoke at his wake

In a big, empty room. 


Now he’s in heaven

Telling God to his face

“It’s me you should thank

For this fabulous place.”
