The Treasure

The Treasure

Way off a long the ocean wall
There stands a hill nice and tall
Along that hillside under the vines
There is a cave, death is its call

For far back in that cave
Is a chest of many treasures
Many men have died there
Trying to get it for pleasures

For the floor of that cave
Is nothing more than quick sand
It has swallowed up
A good number of brave men

The chest stands piled
Way up over its top
The jewels just sparkle away
Luring more victims non-stop

Some say this treasure
Was put there by Blackbeard himself
It sits way back in there
Like candy on a shelf

So if you must try
At least say you was warned
For if you sink in the sand
Your soul shall be scorned

But if one could find a way
Across that quicksand floor
He would have enough to last him
Until he reaches the forevermore

Just one of those diamonds
Would surely make you rich enough
But to get it out of there
That's the job that's so tough

So many want it
They all know it's there
They know of the dead ones
But greed won't let them care

So the quicksand stays active
Eating each one alive
Slowly sinking on down
You can hear each of their cries

Very nice write, and I especially like these lines. One of the best explanations of poetry I have seen.
