Vanity Cruise-Sequel Ii

He had everything in private exclusivity. Far from the maddening joyous crowd, On the common deck, When day slipped into night, He could not know, Because in his suite it was always day, Suddenly he felt a large shake, And dropped the expensive glass of champagne, The crew did not even have the time, To reach his place, The storm had hit and hit bad, It had broken the ship in two, As the grounded lightening made it more bad, The ship broke exactly where his suite lay, He was inundated at the very first, Soon ship sank, And so did his vanity, He had bequeathed, His entire estate to his son, Who years later, Boarded the same cruise with as much vanity, The day is awaited when his stock of vanity would be over, And the ship will sink yet again all over.
