Sian Mein


Lord of the Flies


The boys are in pain,
On an island with no where to hide
A gaping hole in society
One is killed with a powerful blow
The thoughtful one is stabbed
And the first child is forever lost.

Ralph the leader gets poked and jabbed
It all starts out happy
The group working all together
But Jack is a hunter
So we all know it won't last forever.

The beast will get you some day
For it's hidden in us all
When little kids no longer play
That is when civilisation will finally fall...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
