Making It So

 

An astrologer spoke of your imminent demise,
And I'd say his prediction was truthful and wise.

Intent to leave nothing after your fate,
You recklessly drained your father's estate.

Your millions are gone, and now I surmise
In less than a year comes your imminent demise!


Martial, IX lxxxii
