Treasure Island

Sprain with pain


From heavenly realm he came to reign,
A lone volunteer stain with pain for everyone,
His days were short within the global frame,
He made the sick well and gave them new vision.

Flushes out the pain stained against humanity
The indispensable contribution highly esteem,
We have not seen all the suffering of society
But sacrifice for good of mankind was given.

By the crimson blood that in time led the crowd,
And paid the penalty for all who may never know
How deep the debt he went for the greater good
Shows the demonstration of love bestow.

Strength and wisdom gives a standing ovation,
We must grow stronger in understanding this power,
Hope will call us away within a glorious selection,
Find a neutral place for us all be together.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
