Treasure Island

Be Very Afraid


Come on you ghouls and ghosties
I’m waiting for you to come
Halloween night and I’m all grown up-
Do you think you can scare me some?

Now that I’m big and fearless
I never cover my eyes in bed
In fact I might even scare you now-
If you weren’t already dead?

Anything you want to try is fine
But just don’t make a mess
That’s all I’m really scared of nowdays-
My old joints getting stiffer I guess?

Oh, is that why you make that gruesome face
I thought it was just for effect
Auld Lang Syne can be damned to hell-
Now that we’re all become train wrecks.

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 »
