Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Born To Be Slaves


some people are born to be slaves
these are inevitable consequences of inaction
their refusal to take opportunity by the throat

to study work hard when young
to apply themselves to problems at hand
to work extra jobs overtime when available

habits additions like gambling drugs alcohol
will enslave many with vice consequences
freedom belongs to endeavours over long years

loyalty support given in crisis may win lifelong friends
our attitude to emergencies disasters catastrophes
may shape our freedom chances for the rest of our lives
