Treasure Island

Buddy Bee Anthony


Haven't you heard?


Our V.P shotgunned his hunting buddy
thought he was a bird
Missing teen confirmed dead
Haven't you heard?

News at eleven
All good children won't be goin up to heaven
That's assured

There's flooding all along river roads
Mudslides washin away heavy loads
1300 drown on ferry boat barge
The poor get more of nothin while the rich live large

Village gone
buried deep
under mud, rock and sand
Can't even move to Canada without a hundred grand.


The Chinese have launched a man up into space
Our world is gettin to be one very crowded place
Shrimp boat smashed up on rough rocky cove
W. sold his XYZ's to Carl Rove

Newscaster's tellin us great big lies
The Bossman gets a tummy ache, and everybody cries
That's the word
what haven't you heard?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
