////Drug addiction


Drug addiction
O man
What gives you?
This insane
Habit of falling
Unconscious in vain
Falling on filth
For finding food
Nothing in mind
Nor cash or kind
On the road side
Quite open and wide
You often faint
Before reaching home
Or just on the door
Everybody abhor
Your this futile lore

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

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