The Battered Suitcase - 3rd 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, this fall And yet one day he fell from grace
From valued friend to bagatelle
Slipped beyond his hand’s embrace.

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