Triolet X 3

Triolet i
 
I've had my three-score year and ten
will I have strength for any more?
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 and try for four-score
I've had my three-score year and ten
will I have any strength for any more?
 
Triolet  ii
 
I wish I was a simple dream
never needing to waken up,
knowing nothing of this world's schemes
I wish I was a simple dream,
 
Not knowing of eternity
needing neither to eat nor sup,
I wish I was a simple dream
never needing to waken up.
 
 Triolet    iii
 
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?

Author's Note
Triolet i.        loosely based on Psalm 90:10 kjv

Triolet ii         I could sleep for England & just lurve to dream.

Triolet iii        I don't eat red meat, otherwise, everything's fair game.
