Rookie - 0 Points (Dec 25,1984 / Nigeria)


Demonic, tormenting thy companion,
Lurking to entice for a union
Unwelcome visitor will, but decline
Misery stays for good, not mine

All my riches since you have plundered,
My joy ravaged, my life battered
Shall I say i have a fill of thy savagery?
My rhyme shall be my mournful delivery

I foresake thee now and forever
Take thy baggage me never remember,
My life, a precious waste you made
My struggle's my strife to recover your raid

Hence, my song my theme be still,
Thee, I banish evermore to hill

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
