Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

DRY


Imagine a man
strangled to reach
your bare wet branch
for a drink,

A drop of water
screaming out
of it's mind!

Look for Christ's
sake - please find another...

And you dying of a thirst,
that you barely conceived,

Then stumble along,
bash into things,

while a trillion necks stretch,
stretch - stretch forth,
like good elastic,

And drink down so fondly
the fast flowing screams...

Into mouths, like great big drums,

Violently gushing!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
