Treasure Island

Russell Nero

(May 25th,1995)


I, I am Sherlock Holmes
only in name, not in comparison
for I love the mystery reality throws with pros and cons
cause I crave the search for my own answers
yet I, I wish for help every once in awhile
I have a block in my road
she's silent, she's new
I'm old, I'm well the class idiot
and no matter how hard I try
I can't quit making a fool out of myself
No matter what I do
I keep missing my chance to make a good impression
Sherlock Holmes would share a laugh at my expense
I'm stumped and I'm close to just
throwing my hands up
translation: give up
Faith is her name but I've lost mine
somewhere in my state of mind

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