Lifeboat for One


When Fifty versus Them
Became too much to bear
The Blues anchored themselves
Onto the feet of Fifty and
Built a lifeboat for One, where
He put his hands behind his head
Laid with the sun on his face
Ears plugged while Fifty was
On fire, their screams echoing
Beneath the waves of shots
From the Blues, who also had
Their ears plugged, and together
They laid, Blues and One, on the
Lifeboat they built, with Fifty
Underneath to carry them afloat
