Beau Golden's Epitaph


Given my freedom what shall I place
Upon a blank slate abo' time or space?
Must I yell out that man is a beast?
Or simply oppose war and beg for peace?
The TV has trained us both to fixate
Our lives were causing a rising crime rate
Life is absurd just a 'nap' for the sun
I chose how i lived and now I am done
Farewell to you my friend, lover, or fan
I've shared of myself as best as I can
If i dont find you resting beside me soon
Join me eternally n' we'll howl at the moon!
Beau Golden

    This one is smoothly written and constructed. No reader has to struggle here.
    In fact, it was a pleasure.
