Day 231: Rhyme & No Reason

“Your silver and your gold are mine;

your best wives and children also are mine.”

They came and took it all

Left us there to fall

They didn’t leave a penny

Of all we had that was many

The beautiful wives we held

Were tied and away they were led

All the children we had raised

Not once did we receive praise

For then being so well behaved

Now all I have is gone

They’ve come and taken it all.


Thank you for reading.
