An old merchant was born on this date,
He’s so rich, so famous in their state;
He thought that this digit made him great,
So he kept all things one more than eight.
Age nine, he was already engaged,
A woman with mansion and nine maids;
So wealthy that they enjoyed their life,
They went to Casino day and night,
At the end, he found out he’s not right.
