Treasure Island

Spike Milligan

(16 April 1918 – 27 February 2002 / Ahmednagar)

Feelings


There must be a wound!
No one can be this hurt
and not bleed.

How could she injure me so?
No marks
No bruise

Worse!
People say 'My, you're looking well'
.....God help me!
She's mummified me -
ALIVE!

    Spike Milligan always had a unique sense of humour which carries in this poem. One should see the funny side of life, and in the ordinary Spike found the absurd fascinating.
    One should think of the Goon Show as the more absurd version of this poem.
    Humour is a great restorative, particularly to something treated so seriously as spurned affection (which I assume is the object of this poem) . (Report) Reply

    The serious side. Yet he can still conclude with something of a laugh. Wonderful. Paul. (Report) Reply

    This poem is really really A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
    Thank you so much for giving us the chance to enjoy it, Mr. Milligan :) (Report) Reply

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
