Treasure Island

Naveed Akram

(15 December 1973 / London, England)

A Blow of Cruelty


Many do interest their talents,
Whilst some do sacrifice their life.
Many do automatically pull the punch,
When others just receive the blow.
Many earn a million pounds,
But then, most do forsake it and their life.
I cleverly refute the statement of a killer
Who lived in decades and loved the seconds
Shown to him, that were seconds of cruelty.

That is for ever England. There shall be
