Treasure Island

Walter C. Edwards


In Time Of Need


Everything is old and rusting for me,
at this time of need,
the clocks have seamed to go backward,
falling apart at the seams,
worn out with in a need of repair,
wise but uncertain,
not destitute yet,
but I feel so close to the edge,
to fall off the cliff that they have made for me,
why in such time of hardship should I be in need,
work hard, well and honestly,
broken back, hands out, on bended knee,
why, oh why me.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
