Treasure Island

And A Big Welcome To 2012

Seeking Earth and what it means;
We’ve split the atom,
Tearing hearts –
To slap a face and then
From grace to fall
In failing evolution.

We die in sperm, negate the egg
To rent the planet’s reproduction.

Leave poor Gaia alone! –
She never saw it coming –
Humans –
Never thought that life would run away
Inside a breast of selfishness –

And what of woman’s cream-skinned nakedness
That beautifies the mammary mountain
If all becomes a nothingness;
Spermatazoan fountains gone –
Those that maketh Man’s history:
For whom would history be?

The monster quakes:
Bring it forth, the sun,
Let it burn, rage, and swell
Until – foretold by Man –
The red and mighty Hell

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
