Treasure Island

Ryan Brodesser

(9/16/1994 / California)

Halleluja!


1. Hark! Sing loud, and sing out proud

2. The threat is at last finished!

3. The iron hold of the evil dictator

4. Like sands on the shore, is at last diminished!

5. You are free! You are free!

6. To do, to see and to be what you wish to be

7. Rejoice! Come out to the streets and join the throng!

8. To celebrate and drink a toast and join for a song!

9. Tear down those corrupted gates and walls

10. Storm over the battlements and clear free the darkened halls!

11. As the soldiers flee, let them be, We have bigger fish to fry.

12. Capture the evil one we had to suffer for

13. Hang him on battlements, and let him slowly die!

14. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

15. As night falls

16. Join the halls

17. For a feast to be remembered

18. It will be a memorable one

19. Except for the poor cattle who will be dismembered!

20. Put down those hammers and shovels

21. Come, join us for fun

22. And for awhile forget your troubles!


23. Bring cheer, some friends and enjoy our company for awhile.

24. Remember though, there is one thing in your mind to file,

25. And while you're at it, always wear a smile!

26. There will be a big old place

27. A big old barn

28. Which has a good fire, and a handful of yarns!

29. Light the torches and hoist them high!

30. Our jubilation goes up to the sky.

31. Even when the daytime begins to show

32. The celebration shouldn’t stop or even slow

33. All throughout the night, celebrate in joyous light

34. Hallelujah! Celebrate the end of our plight!

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
