Treasure Island

Lion's den

If you are staying
With a wicked man
If you are living
With a wicked man
If you are making
Friendship with wicked man
Be sure you are walking
In to the lion's den.
Wicked man is dangerous
Wicked man is more
Dangerous than a snake
Wicked man is more poisonous
Than a cobra the most
Poisonous snake of the world
You may survive from snake bite
But you can not survive from
The clutches of a wicked man
You will die in his den.

    I agree, and it says in proverbs in the bible the double minded an is unstable in all his ways. I found that from my ex husband he was xxxxx large in clothes and 5ft eight, I'm 5ft 2 1/2' and not much weight, and have a disease when I married him I was in wheel chair for 12yrs of a 19yr marriage I beaten starved, neglected of any fluids to drink at the end he bashed my spine with iron bar now I have 4 vertebrae broken and 1crushed and damage to my spinal cord where I can't get rid of pain, he is about to be sentenced to jail, but police say he may get off as a first offence. But he has been in and out of courts for 12years so not first ofence they make the guilty in Australia look the victim, and the victimt look the guilty person. Where is the justice. Great poem.

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,
