Treasure Island

William Cavanagh

(Canada)

A Face is a Mirror of the Mind


Honorable Confucius used to say
A face is but a mirror of one's mind
I believe my observations to this day
Upon the many faces I did find
With les yeux of dark despair
Pouting facial lines that I have seen
An icy stoic stare, a gruesome glare
An attitude, murderously mean
For your welfare there is no feeling
To hang you high and by the neck
With rough rouges there is no dealing
But to render you a human wreck
First impressions Confucius may well warn you
Trust and confide ni-ni Christian, Muslim or a Jew

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
