The Impossible Forever

The first man to live forever has already been born,
somewhere in the muck to a family fed by corn and
alligators, a place with mosquito the size of fists,
and our system’s thought of ‘everything’, but it hasn’t thought of this:
compounding, and expanding, exponentially returning,
a dollar to the swamp-man feeds a fire ever-burning,
The change in his piggy-bank, properly invested,
will buy your home, your business, and anything requested
the forever-living man will destroy the world we know,
but if such is the cost of eternity,
the world must go.
