There once was a man with as much brain as brawn.
Betwixt and between,
he could never get the two to meet.
Then he took to drink,
ending up smelling flowers for a living
and becoming the laughingstock of town.
But when sobering from the mead,
he used brain power to cultivate his seed
and build an empire towering over the rest.
No longer falling between the flowers,
he sits alone these days imbibing the profits of his greed
while caught between the ebb and flow of trading and investing.
Poor sod with his lofty power
still towering over the rest.
