Treasure Island

Timothy Venard

(November 29th 1995 / Lewes)

CITY OF BLOOD (from the original play by Timothy Venard)


over the hills by a little bay
is a little street where the children play
they think all is well.
but aloof in the air is a terrifying smell.

blood...
in the in the air
blood...
in the streets
blood...
in your veins
if your hart still beats (slow and dark) ...
well dose it?

I see a girl
I see a boy
I see a body
I see BLOOD
city of blood...
city of blood...
CITY OF BLOOD
ALIGHT WITH FLAME.
BURN IN HELL FOREVER.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
