Treasure Island

Captain Cur


Invasion Of The Poet Snatchers

Green liquid life blood flowing through stemmed veins
memories erased reentered plant brain,
cloned with the duplicity of sodded verse
photosynthesized re-imagined birth.

Originality anesthetized
renamed imitations dehumanized
photo copied sundry empty scribes
the super seeding of grass fed minds.

Imposter's among us in cheap detail
pill elongated heads and skin tone kale.
I just a simple pirate on the sea
laughing at poet snatchers chasing me.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Captain Cur went and got himself captured and cloned. You can identify the clones easily. They write stories of Pirates all stolen from the Captain's poems. However all is not lost. The Captain will take this time to reorganize his work and republish.
Good thing I was here to save him!

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
