Treasure Island

Alexander Brome

(1620-1666 / England)

The Anti-Politician

ome leave thy care, and love thy friend;
Live freely, don't despair,
Of getting money there's no end,
And keeping it breeds care.
If thou hast money at thy need,
Good company, and good wine,
His life, whose joys on wealth do feed,
's not half so sweet as thine.

[Hata Bildir]
