Treasure Island

Philip Carter

(London)

Every Single Minute, Every Single Day


It is such a boring life
Standing here on the street
Being here, both day and night
Through sun or rain or sleet
I have no mouth with which to shout
No one hears me complain
When a cigarette gets stubbed out on me
Nobody knows of my pain
I've had couples carve their names
To show their love is real
And dogs that lift their leg up
And their private parts reveal
How I wish I was back at home
Standing proud, so tall and strong
Back there with my family
Back where I did belong
But I am here as a signpost
To let people know the way
Every single minute
Of every single day.

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 »
