Sometimes Mercy Looks Like A Shipwreck
Sometimes mercy looks like a shipwreck,
Dreams dashed on undesired shores,
Stores swallowed up by the raging sea
As you scramble ashore with your very life,
What, if anything, is left,
Where, if anywhere, you stand,
How, if possible, to go on,
Only to find,
On an island with no gold.
Inspired by Daniel Defoe’s classic Robinson Crusoe.
