What Bribes At Death? - Poem by Kevin Lee

Sun arises, defaces darkness,
City in lanterns, gives way for the harness.
A morning begins, concludes the night:
But what more hopes, for a man in fright?

Only the active dullness repeats its monotony,
With a clearly visible sky of harmony.
A troop of children walks past my sight:
But what more hopes, for a man in fright?

Stake stamps heart, snipers sneeze fire,
Primary lesson, still remember from the shire.
And now I've moved to face the fight:
But what more hopes, for a man in fright?

Struggled for meals, with desire for life,
Money was the need for the passions in life.
Only an hour for the rope so tight:
BUT WHAT MORE HOPES, FOR A MAN IN FRIGHT?
