Treasure Island

Wazir Agha

(May 18,1922 / Sargodha, Pakistan)

Heroin


Snake And its charmer
Never have a home
Both tread their path
On foot
Both are travellers
One has its (cast off) skin
The other has the mendicant wrap
Life-long companions
Poison dealers
They 're partners in trade
One makes the poison
The other sells it
On the street!

    A chilling metaphorical comparison. One would be well

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
