Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


A question for both of you


There is this
desire to please
all of you,

and so i dispose
all trash impressing

that both of you may
better forgive and
forget

but in so pleasing
both of you i have become

so disgusting to both
whom i think

have nothing in mind
but to attack and
destroy

the other always
wants the other dead

and be buried but
how can you understand

the wisdom of this
decision: that both of you

must live, and must too
please each one

so we can make one happy
world

for everyone. Is that
hard to understand?

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
