Treasure Island

Plague Rose


I was watching a movie one day
It was about a boy who would save the world
It ended with a cliffhanger
And the only word I could think to say
Burst! Into power you save the day
Even though it's cliché
And that it will end all the same
I can't help but repeat that word
Burst! Into action, into rage
Only for the woman in pain
If you failed I doubt you'd sleep again
So you burst! Clear headed you fall in slumber
No regrets and pains whatsoever
Yet in dreams your enemy haunts you
You fear for your friends and nothing more
And you burst! Like a tiger you protect
And your enemies cower at the sound of your roar
That is burst! A superpower not given by experiments or lineage
Not by toxic waste or even machine
No, it is simply the ability to strike fear at a glance
Yet still be kind to those you protect
This power is courage and confidence
A superpower only the gods could give
And I call it burst!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
