Treasure Island

Ted Sheridan


alone in bitter protest


nonsense dots the mind
like so many fly spots
frequently evacuated via
a pin size brain and oral canal
glued to the paper
on which they land
stuck there in Turdville
until the janitor throws
the mess away
with the complacency
and gross apathy
of a lost cause…..
