Treasure Island

endeavor


I built my fort
I had my soldiers
I was serving decent life
With no foul hollers

Now that i declared war
i got to play my part
I got to fight with comarades
Till that skin falls apart

i wont hide in this hay
im up to cut and bleed
until i die making emends
which i had commited one day

they taking us over
I have nobody to command
would i rather live?
Or die like others in this piece of sand

I think i had my thoughts
just trigger a bullet through my heart
Make a end to this, until my brains comes to drought

Now my slate is clean
and my soul is pure
Hope i could have said
my last words, to my love
With the left over endeavor

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
