Better days

junked willys jeep

True is it that we have seen better days.
Dark are the hours as our time draws nigh.
Memories wane, bones rattle, blind eyes glaze,
The glory of our youth belie.

Mired amongst the coppice,
Where the earth doth strive to reclaim,
Dust to dust, ashes to ashes,
There’s no one ‘cept self to blame.
