Treasure Island

Warren Augustus de Guzman

(April 2,1982 / Riyadh K.S.A)

Job Satisfaction

This morning an old man was in the middle of the road
Right in front of the bus stop to work
With a huge pile of aluminum cans on his left
And another huge pile of crushed cans on his right

He picked up a can from his left
Placed it at his feet
And jumped on the little bugger like a 10 year old boy
Picked it up and threw it on the pile on his right

He just kept doing that, over and over again
While smiling a wild carefree smile
Bearing his yellow teeth and black gums
And having a great time in general

Poem of the Day

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:
