This made me chuckle, though it is a sad query. Succinct summation of a man's life. Well done. Cheers!

Although it was written with a certain amount of tongue in cheek, it's true to say that it does actually hold a certain amount of truth in my own case. ;) 

Thanks for commenting, Gary. :thumbup:

Thanks for sharing this. It’s distilled and bittersweet. 

Thanks for commenting, Parker! :thumbup:

That's what I like about the haiku form: the very fact that it has to be distilled. :)
