Playing In The Lines

If he could right

this ancient vessel

carrying the weight

of a thousand soul.

If he could fell a moment of his soul

would that be some eternal goal

the castaway

felt on the fray

the castaway

feels so faraway.

He did a lot of good

somebody told me I could

he did a lot of good

if anyone might he would

I was almost the one that clapped

perhaps the guests on sides thought apt.
