Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)


long ago, you were cool, you're now so phony
I couldn't believe how fast you'd turn on me
Gave you a fix and that straightened you out
bet you think twice about running your mouth

my words will burn you like an STD
Something like the one
you caught at the park
Playing with strangers
out there in the dark
Not even scooby
can solve this mystery

A shoulder to lean
was there by your side
Lust pulls the blinders
prevents you to see
the biggest joke, yes,
I think you're funny
A ventriloquist found
him a brand new dummy

the love you feeling
it doesn't exist
Something you say
just to fill a void
cuz R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Ain't a priority
Just like our friendship
We are so history

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
