Treasure Island

David Semenske

(9/17/58 / Milwaukee, Wi)

The Castle


As i walk through these ruins
From a land long ago
My inquisitive mindwanders
To and Fro

If these walls could talk
The stories they could tell
Of times so good and not so well

Of plans and schemes
to replace kings and queens
of battles long ago

Of marriages of convience
Of forbidden romance
Under a mistletoe

Mans need of greed
with Power as its seed
As they waited for their hour

for fortune and fame
Playing a dangerous political game
the defeated had to go

To the dungeons for treason
what was the real reason
for going down below



unwritten history
That makes the story a mystery
Things they didn't want us to know



For history is a mystery
written by the victor
So we will never know

Oh, if these walls could talk
