Treasure Island

Avery Hage


Boredom


I am bored
An inescapable feeling, too familiar
A multitude, a plethora of ideas
Entertainment, where art thou?

Video Games
Video Games are entertainment
Not currently, only NASCAR games
Monotonous, superfluous, redundant
I refuse to turn left again

Internet
Internet is entertainment
Copious amounts of statistics
Copious amounts of multimedia
Nothing holds my attention

Television
Television is entertainment
Yet it struggles to be
Over 900 channels, nothing to watch
Arrested Development, I miss you

Entertainment, where art thou?
A master of hide and seek
Enough hiding, before I go insane
Alas, my predicament has been rectified
I have found true entertainment in writing.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
