    Default Faustian Fame

    There once was a man who wanted fame
    So he vied for the riches in a Faustian game
    Put up for grabs was his talent for prose
    His time allotted was the life of a crystal rose

    Ahead of him his tasks were clear
    To write nothing more for an entire year
    And for a day after he would blame
    His tireless efforts on the devil's name

    His ideas were asked to stay at bay
    For any poetic thunder would sunder,
    All chance at winning the day
    This game he had willingly fallen under

    Should he fail to keep away the pen,
    And write away on his love, tears and woes
    Twenty years of his life would be spent
    At the whim of the Shining Star's throne

    No man of ink or cloth could perceive
    The torture resting within his soul,
    As every kiss, and strike of pain-
    Engendered words of beauty bold

    Upon the day his task was met
    The flower crumbling to his feet,
    All the words in the world
    Couldn't hope to meet-

    His thirst for expression of a written kind
    As grapes fell short from their solemn vine,
    His fame was short lived with his words lost,
    He did not foresee his winnings would be the cost.

    Perhaps the world was never meant to make perfect sense.
