Triolet X 3

I wish i was a simple dream
never needing to waken up
unaware of all worldly schemes,
i wish i was a simple dream.

Not knowing of eternity
needing neither to eat or sup
i wish i was a simple dream
never needing to waken up

                        *

I've had my three-score-year and ten
will i have strength for anymore?
well, those years will not come again,
i've had my three-score-year and ten.

All labour and sadness, but then,
dare i reach out for the four score,
i've had my three-score-year and ten
will i have strength for anymore?

                                   *

I tasted dead flesh today
but, will i taste it tomorrow,
be that as it may
i tasted dead flesh today.

We are what we eat, they say
now i savour sorrow,
i tasted dead flesh today
but, will i taste it tomorrow.
