The Merchant's Lucky Nine

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.
