Treasure Island

City Life

Hustle bustle
Content of life
Jostling crowd
Chaos traffic
Day in day out
Is the struggle
For every life

To the land Unknown
From land familiar
With dreams high
And illusionary imagination
Struggle begins for
Bread and butter
Succeeding these
Is the housing issue

Not a provision
For a step to climb
Leave alone
A comfort of life

Finally all settled
With courageous move
Creeps and cribs
The lonely heart
With roving eyes
Searches every
Public place
Disco bars, pubs
and joints
For fun and frolic
Of the city life.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
