The Pilgarlic Man

A boy who grew up poor and took anything given to him. As he ages, he soon turns ill but overcomes his illness and celebrates life to the fullest.

The pilgarlic man who walked with pride,

gave a small smile to all who pried.

The man who came from poor,

small gifts he now pleased to pour.

From drinking ale,

to being ail.

His brain once awed,

now thought of as odd.

He was not to be thought of as better,

but one who was a bettor.

The End
