Ol' One Eyed Pete was a miner,He hailed from parts unknown.His claim was in Alaska,Where he dug for forty years.Every day from sun up to sun down, he toiled away,Only the thought of Gold filled his head!He lived his life just for that one pursuit,never spendin' a single nugget he didn't have to,!
Ol' Eyed Pete Was a real miser ya see,only bought what it took to survive and continue in his greedy need to hoard just a little bit more!
He hid his hard won treasure in the floors of his claim,The safest place he knew! Well he was always there!
One day the ground began to tremble and the mountain shook,The boulders came crashing down,and Ol' Pete's Mine just disappeared!
Ol' Pete stood at what was once his mine,
alook of disbelief fillin' his face!
Slowly Ol' One Eyed Pete began to realize,Forty years work and everything from it were lost,his life's work was all for naught!
Ol' Pete Had but two choices at this point,spend the rest of his life diggin' up that from the past,
Or just acceptin' his lot and Movin' on!
But Ol' Pete Couldn't decide,he couldn't go forward,couldn't just leave what was past behind
Ol' Pete just sat on a boulder waitin' to die

Thanks Spunky. Reminds me of the work of Anne McCaffery. All the Werrs of Pern, Dragondrums etc . Superb dragon fantasy sci-fi writing.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.
