Success, thou art slippery
And seductive too.
The combination is too strong
For one to ignore.

And when you concede
You rule the head
Make the body strut
And lose conscience of self.

Then to master you
Is more difficult
The failure of which
Leads to a fathomless deep.

O! You never cease to make me wonder
But then, had it been not for you
Mankind would not have prospered.
Salutations to thee, O! Success.
