Treasure Island

Fast Gamble


Hesitant to

take this

gamble.

But I have to.

Time can never be stopped.

I have to

Time can never be stopped.

I have to because

according to it running should be

walking.

Running is walking its way round.

Gasps.

Gasps,

Run for your wrinkles.

Gasps.

Run even though seconds only walk its way round

Running is walking.

And you won't even see your tomb.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
