Treasure Island

T (no first name) Wignesan


Even just cause makes not good war
If you attack you put to waste:
Good does no harm

Marshalling defence at your door
Can make bloody retreat in haste:
Shrieks of alarm

If you let the Dao lead the Way
Bad Guys'll jump up and down in vain:
To tumble down

Even apt choices bring dismay
While you listless wait and bear pain:
Time's the rogue clown

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
