All Good Things Come to an End
Oh no, I can't even eat because my food turns into gold
King Midas loved adding things to his treasury, he just loved his wealth. King Midas's decision was for anything he touches to turn into gold. Bacchus granted his wish.
Washing the Golden Touch Away
King Midas's wish was granted, everything he touched turned into gold. The first thing he touched was an oak tree. King Midas was very happy with his power and he definitely had the "golden touch."
This is the life, I am so powerful
When King Midas tried to eat, he couldn't because his food turned into gold. King Midas begged Bacchus to take away his golden touch. Bacchus said the only way to get rid of it is to bathe where the river Pactolus rises.
After bathing in river, King Midas's golden touch was washed away. Now, to this day it is said that the river Pactolus has golden sand at the bottom
