The Fate of the Foolhardy

Learn from the fate of the foolhardy ones, 

who had been pleased by the treasure they won. 

Fleeced, skinned and dead they all went to hell. 

Death cared for them as shepherd. All went well.


Don’t be afraid when some people get rich.

They too, will die and find resources nixed.

Then, with their ancestors, never see light.

Mortals can never abide in their pride.
