Photo Chilcoot Pass, Klondike gold rush, Alaska 1898
The thief of time ran amock
No Easy Ride one could fortell.
Delays for days, left behind
In freezing slush a cold hell.
Up there yond there is a shock
Along the row the strong nd weak
‘Pass along the line!’ they say.
‘Pass along the line and beyond.
You will find it, what you seek!’.
Love, power, money, influence and
The accoutrements that accompany
Awful attractors of destruction.
