the richest man

The richest man, in the world

To be at the top of a trade or business must be a burden
that also goes for famous artists
I'm thinking of a man so wealthy he can buy anything
he desires, is there such a thing as limitless preference?
for a business type, it must be hard
 to understand
people who are happy with less and have no hunger
to walk the extra mile for slippery glory and medals
and prizes were given to him for his wealth and not
for his personality, that when faced with
the nonpractical discourse appears to falter
there is, of course, the desire to get what you want  
but paying for it, which, since it was not given freely
loses its allure, and a sense of bitterness seeps in
to be the top dog dominating the backyard is manly
but to be loved for its own sake is much more sane
