Moralism on a wealthy man

A poor man daydreams about the lottery.
His wife and three children say,
Look at us! I’ll rub your muscles,
and I’ll serve your food, and I’ll
recite Macbeth in the living room,
and I’ll let you watch me shave
for the first time. Parenthood
sunk in theory! How dreary
his death two years in
to his firstborn’s puberty—
