Treasure Island

Tyler Stafford


OLd


Older than I Older than he
The old man eats from the knowledge tree

What once was love What once was lust
has all but is all disolved to dust

Dusty dust dry and frailblowing in the wind
like an old teddered sail

His heart will fail
when his mind has bailed

The news will come by first class mail

I have or had what could never be
a father grandfather as old as me

Older than I older than he
that sweet old man is noneother than me.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
