The Child
I'm really sad today
cause Goldie had to go away.

The Retiree
The best years of my life were fine;
aging from one to eighty-nine.

The Liar
When it was time for me to rest
no one stood by to be my guest.

The President
Four years spit on by men I've lead
only to be praised then, when I am dead.

The Worker
Within my works I'm proud to see
those toiling men, 'richer' than me.

The Miser
I've spent a lifetime gathering all
that which was never mine to call.

The Hero
Between the praise and glory given me
I'm just another vile mercenary.

The Brothers
'I regret nothing in my fame.'
'Yes, and I regret the very same.'
