    Hurrah

A mind enraged,
By cinder block.
A roof of
Felt and tar,
Engaged in
Traveling back,
Where wanton
Memories are.
With riddled rains
It flies this land
This land of
Shangri-la.
Where ever cries
And ever lies
Our past and
Last hurrah.

I'm not sure if I am getting the meaning of this one Seymour, but it leaves me with a sad feeling. Is that the feeling I should be getting? I think it has something to do with 'memories' and 'past' and 'last' hurrah, that makes me feel that this is about something that can not be recaptured. Let me know if I'm even close?......LOL

The withered hand
reaches out
touches brow
heart sings
the last Hurrah!

Oh, well done Sy!

I love this to pieces!  I am feeling much of that haunting "remembering the last hurrah" feeling these days.  Those last four lines are especially poignant and beautiful.

This land of
Shangri-la.
Where ever cries
And ever lies

Last hurrah.
