Not al that glitters is gold
At least, that is what I am told.
Shortly after the “War of Northern Aggression”
There came into a strange man’s possession,
A purloined letter and story of great wealth,
Promise of fame, fortune and good health.
You see there once was a ship called the General Lee
And deep within her, the hopes of the Confederacy.
Was she sunk by the men in blue?
Or plundered by those who knew?
And what became of the golden ore
That appears to be lost forever more?
This strange man, born up north, but raised down south
Had raven hair, piercing eyes, and a melancholy mouth.
He was a writer by night and a critic by day,
And liked all too much his drinking, gambling and morbid ways.
In the letter, it was written, that behind a basement wall,
In a morgue, lies buried the greatest treasure of them all.
On a dark and dreary night the man did steal
Quietly into the morgue, trying to conceal
His presence and his fear.
He prayed no one would hear
The sound of his tell tale heart.
As he dug deep within the basement rampart.
Down Through dank cellar wall and dirt he fought
Finding a casket, which surely contained the fortune he sought!
Carefully, slowly, he removed the top of the chest
And found deep inside and laid to rest,
Were not bars of bullion, but skeleton, a dress, and scarab of gold!
In the dark and in despair, the strange little man collapsed.
Many years of searching had just elapsed.
All of naught, no gold, no ore,
And his weary mind cried out, nevermore.
