Part 9 - The Worth Thereof - Poem by Leslie Alexis

I found the chess; the one we thought was lost;
Found in winter, it was covered with frost.
We thought it lost. I found it surprisingly,
Down by the cove; beside the gushing sea.
It surprised me. The markings were the best,
Upon the chess were crowns; captain’s request.
Only the best; for nothing else would do,
It was the same with members of the crew.
The best alone would do. O and within,
I found ten-year-old foils and rusty tin,
I found old tin within. I was the fool,
I damned whoever thought that this was cool.
I was the fool; to think that I would own
Gold, platinum, diamond – the precious stone.
