Treasure Island

Bernard Snyder

(11-07-1959 / Savannah Ga.)


If I have to travel all over the world
to obtain my goals,
run into all kinds of obstacles in the road (I won't be discouraged)
when I get half way
and things look dismal,
if I get spun around by tornadoes
and lose my cell phone signal (it won't matter)
and even when I've reached my destination
and people look at me as inferior,
I'm gonna maintain my composure
and let them read my material,
and once they realize my talent
and the crowd starts clappin'
I'm gonna play one of the songs for the non-believers
who said this would never happen.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
