Seasonal Riches

Crocus By The Wayside
Crocus By The Wayside

Now, King Croesus lived round 600BC
(or maybe he’s just part of mythology)
he attacked the Persians and, being fabulously wealthy,
thought he’d check first with the Oracle at Delphi.
The Oracle said “A great kingdom will fall.”
“Oh,” said Croesus, “is that all?”
He charged off into battle – and was defeated,
because, you see, the Persians cheated.
The Greeks disbanded when winter came,
but the Persians didn’t – and ruined the game
So the moral is, even for the incredibly rich,
now and then Life’s just a bitch.
