Treasure Island

Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)

Loss


They sailed without reservations
Boarded a ship at edge of night
Made themselves at home
Took their children, servants and wives
Happy everyone was hanging out on deck
All were enjoying mist from the sea
Prophesied arrival before they even left
They had no cause for concern
This event was wanted and planned
So they hearkened not at the captain warning
They wouldn't enter life boats for land
It took the ship to dip before one knew fate
Yelling screams who found no delight
Boat room given up and those on ship loss
Into night those who moved in new pods
As the ship last piece
Sunk into its whirlpool

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
