Scriptures (Poetry)

brown book page

Lost in the sands of forgotten times

Lies a treasure from a distant past

Fellows, we must recapture this trinket

Of lost passions and intellect

From long buried centuries passed

We still have so little to teach

And infinitely too much to learn

O Fortune’s wheel! It has turned!

The princely one’s reign has ended

Days of hell-bent fury and rage

Have only now just begun

Here the poet writes oh so solemnly

On the bloodstained pages of his diary

“Lest we forget the humble beginnings

From which we all once began!”
