Treasure Island

Khairul Ahsan


Be Natural, Do Natural


Nature has its own laws.
Do not violate a single clause.
Just be natural, do natural,
If you want a youth eternal.

Deep within her,
Nature has set a receptacle
To collect the jets
Of the produce of your testicle.

A safe pouch, to mold and develop,
It's nature's job to protect and envelop
The embryo, your posterity, your scion,
Unless you resort to a sinful abortion.

So, be in love, and do make love!
But do not do it too wantonly,
Follow the natural route.
Not the one meant for 'EXIT ONLY'.

    @ Bri Edwards,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
    'does this mean there are abortions which are not sinful? '
    No, it doesn't, except in the very rare case when it is done to save a life. You are within your right to differ, but to me, abortion is sinful. (Report) Reply

    Unless you resort to a sinful abortion. ....does this mean there are abortions which are not sinful? and who decides what sinful means and why sinful is bad? you don't mention god, but you mention nature. yes, humans (and other animals) have incredible methods of reproduction. but does that mean that fertilization should result in birth every time? when humans were not so numerous and diseases and other hazards were more likely to cause the death of newborns, infants, children, and adults, it was advantageous for the increase of the species to have as many live births as possible i guess. but now the world is filling with people, the chances of death are less for many for many reasons and medicine has allowed women to choose abortion. i wish abortions were unnecessary (and contraception has certainly helped cut down on the numbers of abortions performed, or so i've heard) but i do support a woman's right to choose to have one in most cases...after some appropriate education about the procedure and the alternatives (adoption for instance) .

    i especially enjoyed these lines, including the rhyming:

    Deep within her,
    Nature has set a receptacle
    To collect the jets
    Of the produce of your testicle.

    A safe pouch, to mold and develop,
    It's nature's job to protect and envelop

    1 wan·ton
    adjective \'wo?n-t?n, 'wän-
    : showing no thought or care for the rights, feelings, or safety of others

    : not limited or controlled

    of a woman: having sex with many men

    i just looked at the poem again and noticed you did NOT write But do not do it wantonly, . you DID write it
    But do not do it too wantonly, soooooo i guess that means i can be a little bit (at least) wanton in my lovemaking? glad to hear it! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Nothing better for a poet to know that his message is received and understood by the audience. Thanks! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Philosophical. It may be short, but there's a clear message that anyone may intercept. Great poem, Mr. Ahsan! (Report) Reply
