10 Poem For/from Lazlo Zalezac's List: 'Facts of Life' by ffwd

Into every life a bit of truth may fall. The truths of life fell into mine. This is my homage to the creed called the 'Facts of Life' that Lazlo Zalezac invented for his novel, 'The Millionaire Next Door'. I recommend the story as one of Zalezac's best. BTW, TeNderLoin points out that "The Millionaire Next Door" is posted right here on the Fine Stories website.
