This poem really stood to me, even though the guy who was singing the Ballard wasn't really very good at singing. The Ballard was really sad (like every Ballard), It made it seem really scary and eerie when he talked about the witches of November. The most sad part of the Ballard for me was when it described the people realizing they had no hope and that the gloomy November was taking them. Knowing your going to be dead in a short amount of time would give me the saddest few moments of my time. One of my dads business partners friends was told that she had 4 weeks to live. I could not imagine living like that, having to tell the people you love. I'm lucky this isn't me on this boat. Always know your life could end at any moment. So live your life, because you never know when it could end.
