The bedevilled man

"A man will give up 
everything 
for his life," 
Said one man in a book I 
once 
read.
That man was married to 
a 
foolish and wicked wife,
Who desired that he 
should 
meet his end.

"Are you still holding on 
to 
your integrity?" She 
asked.
"You are talking like a 
foolish 
woman." He replied.
For He was bedeviled 
with 
pains by a fiend;
Despite that, he didn't at 
all 
utter a single sinful word.


 This man was also very 
unfortunate and 
wretched;
For he had three 
unsympathetics for 
friends.
"May the day of my birth 
perish." He cursed;
Because no one could 
heal his 
pains, not even his 
friends.


He cursed and cursed the 
day 
of his birth again,
That day: may it turn to 
darkness,
And may God above not 
care 
about it again.
Upon it, let there be murk 
and 
blackness.


Oh! how terrible it was 
for that 
man.
Fame and fortune were 
once 
his friends,
But all things for him are 
now 
vain.
Foolish wife, lost wealth, 
bad 
health, unsympathetic 
friends.
