Treasure Island

Ailis Ryan


Falling


Twas just a scream
To start it all
You must beware
The Reichenbach fall

He says goodbye... And jumps....

Sherlock's falling to the ground
Moriarty's dead- not a sound
And John is terrified because...

He's falling
He fell
Dead forevermore
Untouchable touched
Undoable done

'This is my note' he said
'Thats what people do'
But others wouldn't kill themselves
Just to save a few

And Sherlock's bleeding dying dead
Moriarty is a fake, they said
And John is terrified because...

He's falling
He fell
Dead forevermore
Untouchable touched
Undoable done

'The more they eat
The faster they die'
Of course his life
Was just a lie

'He will do anything
To stop being bored'
Never thought your life
Could be just his toy

And Sherlock's buried, gone forever
Moriarty is just another legend
And John is hoping, praying now
That it isn't really happening

Because a single seed of doubt
Will see a great man to a fall

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
