Treasure Island

Beyond The Means


Anthropologist,
Elements,
Death and money;
Being stretched beyond the means of life.

Muse!
Thanks for your lovely comments;
Life!
With the honey of sweet love dripping under the moonlight.

Social gatherings,
Entrepreneurs,
Muse!
To dance one more time;
Flour, flower!
With dancing pallbearers;
Strains! !
Traditinal services;
But, beyond the means of your pocket.

Serves, services!
Demand and supply,
Captured! !
With traditional drummers.
Casket, basket!
Brochures,
Commercials,
Intersections! !
But, under your means of your sweet love.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
