Throwing In The Towel - Poem by Christopher Tye

Throwing In The Towel

That is it no more can I take,
Honour is all I have left,
Rebelling against those who belittle me,
Outnumbered and hopelessly out gunned,
What chance of victory today,
Into battle against everybody and everything,
No other option left open now,
Got to fight the fight to a standstill.

Into one last stand against the world,
No hope of victory or survival.

Targeting those who've cheated me,
Harbingers of doom surround me,
Everything seems to be a struggle.

Today will be the end of days,
Old friends will be reunited in heaven,
When the dust settles what will be left,
Earthbound for eternity desperate to be in the heavens,
Life must come to an end even for me.
