Let me tell you a story

Of not so distant memory I was a merchant I ruled an empire Let me tell you a story Of not so distant memory I was a champion I ruled a game Let me tell you a story Of not so distant memory When legal tender was rubber bands I was wealthy My wealth adorned like ornaments on my wrist Clad in the expensive creation of Ananse's mystery My name will go down in history I'm a legend A ruler Undefeated The rippling effect of my confidence Rubbing off on my subjects Mistaken as pride Misconstrued for weakness Asking for another chance - a rematch To take back what was theirs Let me tell you a story Of not so distant future Seated here in pensive mood Racing through my mind Thoughts of gaining more wealth, To play or not to play?
