    Road of Riches

    The motive was to work till a fortune of size grew
    With which a life of leisure by reason would ensue
    From which no turn of hardship would threaten to undo
    To sacrifice the short to invest in the long view
    And so it went, the hours and weekends they pushed through
    A family full of ghosts but the payoff would yield huge
    Till decades down the line this epiphany stung true
    They'd raised their worth along with a son that they never knew
