No lipstick on this trip - Contest

Here I sit all alone
On an island I will call home
For the next ten years or more
How , why, what is the score

I have my trusty tool
A Swiss Army knife is nobody’s fool
A waterproofed  large awning
Giving me shelter dusk to morning

From sun and rain alike
That the second of my likes
My third I had to peruse
So many things I could choose

The bible brought itself to the fore
Has so many stories, I had read before            
Nothing else can I choose
These three items I peruse

My knife with its many blades
Though horses hooves are in the shade
The awning I can wrap around
Or pin it out on the ground 

My choices three I hold in awe
Damn forgot a lipstick wish there were four
