The Good Men Do…

Anthony Murphy

(c 1825-1909)

This,
and nothing else,
is his legacy
passed down
for generations.

Lizzie said it was time
to close the goose pen
for the evening.

He said
“I don’t care
if they all go down
to the creek
and drown.”

  1. So very sad. Sounds as a bit more like the beginning of a story. I’m not sure if it translates completely into poetry, but the passage is well-written. It falls in-line with the six word story concept. Well done.
