Treasure Island

Nancy Chambers


Different


Outsider, Misfit
Square peg, round hole; didn’t fit

Felt like a jerk
Why did I care
If I was a square?
Now I know
Round is zero!

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
