Treasure Island

Naveed Akram

(15 December 1973 / London, England)

Little, Little Men


The little men have been asleep,
To see them is much too much to keep;
There a broom is uncovered during the fountain
That lashes at them in the dreams of a mountain.

To sweep them up you require friends
Never in short supply, never to make amends;
Forces are at work this day,
This day the forces are astray.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
