The Yukon Trail - Poem by hamid kareem

To Yukon for gold they went
In twos in thousands in cold trail
They left in poverty and death they found
They dug they toiled and hunger they found
They died, they dug and more still came
Gold they came for desolate they became

Their heads were frozen
But onward they dug
Those hunger didn’t kill, the cold sure got
Those who survived
Found their toil in vain was

They dug and found gold
But alas! , twas no gold
For iron ore turned yellow
Like their lives was all they found
And they like their surroundings
Found no gold but fools gold
For all their toil, hunger and death
Yukon was but a fool’s paradise
