He pursued his ambition, till he consummated it
Best of what the world has to offer
What better than a house, cars, bank, huge reputation
What good is having everything pleasurable
Without a woman to shower with bounties unquantified.
Thereafter he decided to settled down, proliferate
To do what needs be done, way back when?
Marry love, beauty, to cherish and adore
Have a family, a heaven in exclusive suburb
Kids to dot on, take to grandma for a weekend.
But his new quest proved herculean
For love abandoned, has vacated his scenes
And just when he thinks his heart’s found home
Life suddenly jumps out of its rented abode
The tenancy having duly expired.
Only thing left, is for him to occupy
As he came empty handed,
So he left, taking with him, nothing
Leaving behind a void, a terminal continuity.
