Treasure Island

C. Albert Andrews


Did You Get It?


The passion of these words tell a story
A story deeper than you want to reach
Further than you want to see,
Stronger than you want to believe
And more touching than you want to feel
Did you get it?
Did you feel something pounding in your chest?
Can you feel your heart racing?
Racing because you are thinking.
Thinking about what I'm going to say
Did you get it?
Well reality triggers fear,
And that's what pounding in your chest.
Fear triggers desperation
Desperation, defense
And defense battle.
But what are we fighting for?
Is it the air? Well take it.
Is it wealth? When today we are here
And tomorrow we are gone!
Did you get it?
Let's separate it!
Separate hypocrisy from democracy
Democracy from equality
Equality from Reality
Reality from fantasy
Fantasy from wealth
And wealth from poverty
Poverty from mortality
What have we got? Nothing!
Did you get it?

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
