Rookie (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!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
