Devil May Take …

There is a new captain,

There is a new flag

Turning handsomely

In the new winds;

Familiar, bloody grinning bones

And the familiar moonpath

To Glory’s angels

Or hell’s blades.

We dance a new-rope dance

Shout deep and long:

“Devil may take the

Last to finish!”

Some memories of


New hope

For tomorrow.
