Loser



He lost his watch. He lost his time.
He lost his voice: he is a mime.

He lost his rule. He lost his clout.
He lost his key: he is locked out.

He lost his trade. He lost his work.
He lost his house: he is a jerk.

He lost his way. He lost his mind.
He lost his sight: he is stone-blind.

He lost his teeth. He lost his bite.
He lost his looks: he is a fright.

He lost his nerve. He lost his guts.
He lost his sense: he is plain nuts.

He lost his life. He lost his soul.
He lost his core: he is a troll.
