Treasure Island

Timothy Venard

(November 29th 1995 / Lewes)

(A poem of my island) 2- The man with no life


He does nothing all day
He just sits there and stares
He has nothing to say
And no one who cares.

He once had a wife,
(Or that’s what I heard)
She ruined his life
Now he won’t say a word.

And who is this man with this trouble and strife
He has no name, but the man with no life.

    This is a good poem. it has a pleasant resonance. Your thought is carried through and summed up nicely. I might suggest one change in the last line of the second verse. Instead of 'No', how about 'Now'.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
