Stream of Lethe


 

 

Carved a stream for your land

That branched from the river of generosity

 

Provided your crops a taste of progress

Which before they could not drink

 

Made sure your trenches were always clear

So your evolution would not be halted

 

Your crops grew beautifully in the spring

And by fall you joined me in market

 

Standing cart to cart I kept my prices fair

Despite having more surplus than you

 

For we both have families to feed

And I saw a friend in you

 

But when fall ended and during the winter holidays

You plotted how to disrupt my crops

 

You let your greed decide the cards you played

My kindness you forgot

 

The night of the full moon before crops are planted

I saw you poison my lands

 

But I did not say nothing

Because the deed was already had

 

I carved a stream for your land

That branched from my river of generosity

 

Provided your crops a taste of progress

Which before they could not drink

 

Made sure your trenches were always clear

So your evolution would not be halted

 

Your crops grew beautifully in the spring

And by fall you joined me in market

 

Standing cart to cart I kept my prices fair

Despite having far less than you

 

For we both have families to feed

And I saw a friend in you

 

“Of all things that happen, never forget the genuine kindness that is bestowed upon you from others. For your actions in times of triumphs lets the true character of man shine through.” -Monica Renata
