Treasure Island

Ernest Hemingway

(21 July 1899 - 2 July 1961 / Oak Park, Illinois)

Captives


Some came in chains
Unrepentant but tired.
Too tired but to stumble.
Thinking and hating were finished
Thinking and fighting were finished
Retreating and hoping were finished.
Cures thus a long campaign,
Making death easy.
