I am a man of war, hear my story;
I am a man of battle, hear my tale.
Blinded by greed, on a quest for glory;
Without a clue, only destined to fail.

Never looked back, only sighted ahead;
Amassed many riches, worldly things all.
The more I had, the more my greed was fed;
O was just setting up, for a great fall.

When it came, I was surprised as can be;
I fell a great distance, far from the top.
Who would have thought it could happen to me?
Once falling I never thought I would stop.

Has the war and the battle ended yet?
It may seem so, but I’ll never forget.
