Mr. Terrence

He had a job he loved
He raved of it all day
“Oh, how lucky I am.”
Mr. Terrence used to say

He had plenty of money
He said to everyone
“I can buy everything
under God’s glorious sun.”

He had a lovely woman
Unrivalled in her looks
“The likes of her I have only seen
In fairy tale books”

He had wonderful children
Two girls and a boy
“When I see their faces
I am filled with pure joy”

All were mighty jealous
Of Mr. Terrence’s life
They yearned for his money,
They coveted his wife.

But nowadays, people ask,
“If he was as happy as he said
Then why did Mr. Terrence
Put a bullet through his head?”
