I really enjoyed this clip and excerpt. The actual poem is “the ballad of reading gaol” it’s quite long but I included one of my favorite excerpts. Im not one for poetry but I need some inspiration and motivation to keep me going. BE A FIGHTER TODAY!
In Reading gaol by Reading town
There is a pit of shame,
And in it lies a wretched man
Eaten by teeth of flame,
In a burning winding-sheet he lies,
And his grave has got no name.
And there, till Christ call forth the dead,
In silence let him lie:
No need to waste the foolish tear,
Or heave the windy sigh:
The man had killed the thing he loved,
And so he had to die.
