Treasure Island

Maddy Jones

(March 2nd,1988 / Kennewick, Wa)

Committed


Thoughts in his head,
Hugging his knees,
Trapped in a room,
Oh, woe is he,

The padded room,
The strapping coat,
All is white,
His mind a-float,

He's simply gone mad,
Crazy, it seems,
He's been committed,
Or so they've deemed,

Sick in the head,
He's not quite right,
Talking of nonsense,
With all his might!

It's pointless for him,
Pills do none,
Talking is futile,
And shock is no fun,

Such despair,
Feeble, is he,
No help for him,
None to foresee.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
