! Kick thy bucket faster...

Kick thy bucket faster-
To inspire young delight;
And when Death claims she's master,
Do smile you bright; so bright.

    it's quite clever how you have mixed a modern phrase like 'kick the bucket' with an older term like 'thy' giving this a time conflicted piece...nice work (Report) Reply

    I like this poem. And I think Death can sometimes be the master, it just depends on the circumtance and time. Very nice writing. (Report) Reply

    I think we all kick our buckets at varying paces in life kyle! I have never considered Death as being a master before, and still won't because death is a natural part of lifes cycle and the peddles move the wheel on! , on the slow train, Tai (Report) Reply
