Attempts at Life and Happiness

 

The men of fortune live to die

Where has Death gone for love?

Rustling skirts and untold lies

 

Even after all is mine,

The pain and memory tug,

The men of fortune live to die.

 

But lit by glowing fireflies

Graves of dead and living dug

Rustling skirts and untold lies

 

Flaring for all those left to find

Greed and anger high above

The men of fortune live to die.

 

Running over, asking why

Bound in fens and mires sloughed

Rustling skirts and untold lies.

 

And rising moons cannot rely

For nothing stops the crying dove

The men of fortune live to die

Rustling skirts and untold lies.
