Treasure Island

The Fire


The rich man wants a fire
A fire so hot and threatening
So everyone withdraw from anything
And the rich man gain everything
Everything relating to money
Everything that affects commerce
To hold each penny in hands
Without paying the wages
A fire is burnt around and
The rich man orders to the village people
To keep the fire burning until
Every villager lose his money
And at last he orders them to push
Each other to make the fire hungry
The rich man never satisfies and want more
At last he burns the remaining with great joy
The anthem of independence is sung
The collected wealth is spent on more fire
The fire is so good for the health
Of the demon of the world
The rich man is always happy with that
To burn more, to earn more
To burn the city, town and every door

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
