Treasure Island

Cheryl McDonnell


Harping On.


Wicked sneering smokers smile
I avoided you
Bargepole and ten miles
Why fear you
A powerless hyena
Just laughing
A scorn but not a thorn
Worthy of my side
Jagged teeth
Were they meant for me
I hope so
Now you give me the humour
That amuses me
On all the dark nights I share
With me
Just someone unforgiving
Leaves me asking
For just one more shot to never recall
Bartender please
Extinguish my selfishness
This tab is on you
This cross
Is a sign of my unfortunate times
A front page death
Dredged from the riverbed
Harping on
You sang your innocence
Put flowers down
On the earth that consoled me
Is this the end
Or do I rise back up again
Do the dead
Stay put in their graves

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
