nothing of substance

he went to school
slogged like a dog
earned his grades
but what did he do?
nothing of substance

he wrote a book
became an author
won some awards
but what did he do?
nothing of substance

he married the girl
was loyal to her
had some children
but what did he do?
nothing of substance

he became a monk
shed his desires
went to heaven
and what did he do?
nothing of substance
