Regina v. Dudley and Stephens

April 8, 2011

Upon a vast and lonely sea
the trade winds did not blow
and left the sails hang lifelessly
on a deathly quiet boat.

No cloud was traveling ‘cross the skies;
no storm was raging there.
Yet all four souls and minds were tried;
eternal struggles flared.

The two of them, there on the bow,
conspired in measured tones,
while one opposed them on the grounds
that they were not alone.

The weakest, on the stern did lie.
He faintly smiled and sighed.
“By wicked hands I’m sure to die;
yet I will save their lives.”
