Treasure Island

Geoff Todd

(18 December 1970 / North Shields)


I bang my head against the wall
I cant get through no not at all
I think we are heading for a fall
So I bang my head against the wall

I try and try to talk it through
There really is no getting through
I feel as though we are poised for war
Or maybe I should walk through the door

I feel it build and begin to seep out
Angers on its way to scream and shout
Jump up and down and round about
Fill me full of grief and shards of doubt

So I push the beast back down below
For frustration is my greatest foe
I bang my head against the wall
No breaking through no not at all

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
