(6th April 1957 / Earth)


Why did you have to go?
Perhaps the lure of money or do you just not know?
I called you friend once and we'd talk and fix all ills,
But now you've walked away in hope to pay off all your bills!
Time is a teacher, an un-forgiving friend that sits and waits in judgement until the bitter end.
Mistakes we have to make through life's unending maze
In clouded judgment for you'll see no lighthouse through the haze.
Mistreatment for the many or have you just forgot?
Perhaps greed took a hold of you and you're caught up in all the rot?
So many missed opportunities to put this world to rights,
Yet like so many others you gave up without a fight.
And when life starts to ebb away I hope you'll plainly see
The mechanism that drives our hearts and tries to set men free!
I leave you with no ill feelings, no malice or no hate.
You've made your rash decision and now it is too late
I only ask you this one thing and then I'll let you bee
That you remember your actions and their impact on such as we!

Fossor jump in qua Angelus vereor calco!

Kipper Stagg.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
