! Kick Thy Bucket Faster... - Poem by Kyle Shield Laster

Kick thy bucket faster-
To inspire young delight;
And when Death claims she's master,
Do smile you bright; so bright.

    it's quite clever how you have mixed a modern phrase like 'kick the bucket' with an older term like 'thy' giving this a time conflicted piece...nice work (Report) Reply

    The revision on this poem is absolutely fabulous Kyle and sends a great message, that we have to live life to the fullest and smile in the face of death, because he ain't scarey anymore! love it love it love it, smiling at you, Tai (Report) Reply

    I like this poem. And I think Death can sometimes be the master, it just depends on the circumtance and time. Very nice writing. (Report) Reply

    I think we all kick our buckets at varying paces in life kyle! I have never considered Death as being a master before, and still won't because death is a natural part of lifes cycle and the peddles move the wheel on! , on the slow train, Tai (Report) Reply
