> Fire In The Water - Something To Write

Fire In The Water

If you have seen the twenty summer’s sun

And have taken heart to the twenty cold winter’s tale;

It’s time your tongue rise against firewater

Coz! Your father had hunted and fished to grave himself.


He forgot his words and did no justice,

Possessed a ferocious expression in the eyes,

Had countenance unyielding and evil

And stood tight between himself and the creator.


His thoughts were reared on the softer banks,

But the first tempest washed away the weak foundations.

His mercy proved shorter than his justice,

And remained a fiend to mediate such a vengeance.


It was firewater that spoke for him

And very imperfectly forlorn his concealed heart.

That delicate and sensitive human

Shrunk deep into the painted bitterness of his false life.
