Wausau Trestleboard
November 2013

Six humans trapped by happenstance,
in dark and bitter cold.
Each possessed a stick of wood,
or so the stories told.

Their dying fire in need of logs,
but the first one held hers back.
For of the faces around the fire,
she noticed one was black.

The next man looking cross the way,
Saw one not of his church.
And could not bring himself to give,
the fire his stick of birch.

The third one sat in tattered clothes,
he gave his coat a hitch.
Why should his log be put to use,
to warm the idle rich?


The rich man just sat back and thought
of the wealth he had in store,
And keeping all that he had earned,
from the lazy, shiftless poor.

The black man’s face bespoke revenge,
as the fire passed from his sight.
For he saw in his stick of wood,
a chance to spite the white.

And the last man of this forlorn group
did naught except for gain.
Giving just to those who gave,
was how he played the game.

Their sticks held tight in death’s stilled hands,
was proof enough of sin.
They did not die from cold without,
they died from cold within.
