The Rich Man and the Poor Man

"Food and money I give to you, 
Why do you shout so mercily 
When I give you your part?" 
queried the rich man.

The poor man replied: 
"Your question you cannot answer 
For from pain and agony you are free, 
But I have suffered and borne 
The situation that I don't like to be in."

"That I couldn't understand 
Because Life for me is easy; 
I take this and take that, 
And life is just what I want it to be." 
consented the rich man.

"Comfort your mind, rich man, 
with realities of death. 
Your wealth I do not envy 
For you can not buy 
eternity with money. 
If to live happily 
is to live in hypocrisy, 
Then I prefer to be silly 
so I would be holy. 
Life you love so much you will lose 
And only then will you understand 
What agony is," the poor man shouted.

"Ha! Ha! Ha! You say so 
For you desire this place of mine. 
Indulgence you have clouded with reason 
But I understand because of your situation." 
boastfully the rich man said.

Outraged the poor man answered: 
"How pitiful the person blinded with pleasure; 
No, you don't care of our journey 
That you have created through your greediness. 
Come now, man of weak soul! 
Your days are numbered for you to face 
The Man of Love. 
You may not cry now but later you will 
When the chilling reality of the last judgment 
Comes across your way; 
Yes, then you will pity, but not for me. 
Not for anybody else. 
But for yourself only! 
Yes, eat, drink, and be merry. 
For tomorrow you shall die!
