The Battered Suitcase - 4th draft - a Roundel

The battered suitcase served him well
As he moved on from place to place
Carrying goods for him to sell,
The battered suitcase.

So what had caused Yet suddenly, And yet one day 
And then one day, a fall from grace
From valued friend to bagatelle,
Slipped beyond his hand’s embrace.

When For wear and tear and age befell
And scrapes and scuff marks dulled his face
No longer will he show and tell,
The battered suitcase.
