Minnesota Fats Describes His Youth

I've been eating
like a sultan
since I was two days old.

I had a mother
and three sisters
who worshipped me.

When I was two years old
they used to plop me
in a bed with a jillion

satin pillows
and spray me
with exotic perfumes

and lilac water,
and then
they would shoot me the grapes.
