Solitary Life part I

Solitary Life Story/poem There once lived a man - that had money to spend. He had so much he thought he didn't need anything more. One day he decided to live all alone and never talk to a human being again. He had a home built on the out skirts of town. It was a beautiful home. He had it surrounded by a high fence, so no one could see or bother him. He talked to a lawyer and told him of his plans. He ask the lawyer how much it would cost him to have his home maintained, bring him groceries, pay his bills for the the rest of his life, including his honoraries. They came to a deal. The man paid the lawyer a lot of money. He would never see, or talk to the lawyer again, or anyone else for that matter. After that he went to his home and isolated himself from everyone. Sometimes he went out for a walk, there were no other houses around. One day he notice that he had a neighbor and she said hello to him, as he walked by, but he did not answer. He also encountered a dog that barked at him, but he paid no attention. His life went on like that for sometime. He continueed his walks without paying attention to the dog that barked at him, or his neighbor. He lived a lonely life, but didn't care. He was always afraid that someone would try to get into his house to rob him, or hurt him. He decided to cover all the windows. One day he notice that the chimney had an opening and thought to himself - got to do something about that. One day he went up to the chimney as he was trying to cover it up, he slipped and fell through. He felt a lot of pain on his back. The pain was so bad, that he thought he was going to die, but the pain soon went away....

    I will also finish the story later, but I like the first installment. "To live alone, one must be a god or a beast." That's an Aristotle quote and I find very much truth in it. I actually think the meaning of alone there, may not even just be solitary. I think many times we are alone no matter how many people are around. I do like your poem and I will the other part soon.
