Treasure Island

Jacques Sprenkie Mateya

(September / Dennilton)

It's a strange familiar and unfamiliar strange


Don't draw a line in sand
Beautiful girls saw this in ordinary girls.
And ordinary girls saw this in beautiful girls

Beautiful girls saw ordinary girls
With brains and ambitions,
Prospering in every aspect of prosperity and prospects.
With high degree of independent and self worth,
In their outfit of internal locus of control.

On high hills
And quest for self actualization.
To secure their place in corporate world.
Man dominated world.
Making comfortable man uncomfortable,
Beautiful girls saw this in ordinary girls.

Now ordinary girls saw this in beautiful girls
Moral bankruptcy with care for beauty,
In their mini skirt to secure their place in bed,
Men mediocrity world,
Living life of gleam and glamour,
Making life out of beauty.
At unknown outlay,
Disbursement of external locus of control.
to make unconfortable man confortable.

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
