All those greatnesses

that could have been done
captain of industry
he who sells stuff
international spy
car dealership
lying lawyer at bar
humble Joe rowing that hoe
for 45 years
seven years of retirement
& gone
making biscuits
serving somebody
y’gotta serve somebody
bobby just might be wrong
au contraire eh?
doing the necessary to survive
this was your life
silver spoon veto’d
sans apprenticeship at public school
no Eton mess today
eased into ownership
playing with stocks
there is no crying over this
temperament was all wrong
tugging that forelock
slight half bow
just was not to be
& later, here
sitting in the bubble bath
glass of wine at hand
who is there to say
all life is not grand?
