Treasure Island

Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

First and Second


First and second
Colliding in battles that thunder in skies
And shake those lesser
A continuous struggle
While others watch through vitreous barriers
All leading up to our first and second
They go hand in hand
And walk the world on a razor-thin edge
Dancing in circles
Crippling the world
It may help or hinder
But in the end a quest none the less
Will you win or not
Will you fall for second
Or will I be your winner

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
