Treasure Island

David McLansky

(5/24/1944 / New York City)

I've Had Enough of Death


I’ve had enough of death
The gasp for air, the struggling breath;
Let those who kill, jailed, live on,
That they their breathing may reflect upon;

Let them stare at the dull grey walls
Let them keen on strange footfalls,
Give them the silence of their thoughts
To hear the misery they have wrought;

Let them pine for a friendly voice
Let them reflect upon their choice,
If their solitude disturb them not,
Let them sit entombed and rot.

To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
