The Last of You

That's the last of you,
now that faith and goodwill
have run course. Shameful
tragedy though this be, such
a departure will not hang over
me.
My garden wall is not stained
so much and from my fruit
there is less tribute taken
though abundance is not of lack.
I gave these fruits to you,
victual rewards, but thou
treated them bitter and sour
of ease and so our friendship
walks with a wounded knee.

Our horizon seems lost,
destiny succumbed to the
black sea.
Around you, may hope and blessings
be but that's the last of you that I
expect to see.
