One Percent

                            by Todd Outcalt

                            For years he studied business books
                            And read the Wall Street Journal
                            Certain that he had the looks
                            And could live his life nocturnal.
                            He made a fortune, spent it twice,
                            And built it yet again
                            Through marriages and varied vice
                            And market discipline.
                            And then one day he realized
                            His life had come and went,
                            With nothing sure or certified
                            Except his one percent.
