Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Lost At Sea

We are leaving on holiday and Quasimodo has
taken over, my hunchback is the result of over-
eating, the mirror reveals swollen eyes and face
I ate party food the past weekend - but why do I
have to resemble a codfish or halibut?

And I feel so frustrated - what on earth is wrong in
my subconscious because in reality everything's
fine - I made my peace with being unbalanced - I
used to think- but now I'm not so sure, why should
Quasimodo take over at a time like this?

He looks terrible in my clothes and I feel terrible with
his mind, all messed-up and lost, wish I could regain
my own mind - lost at sea and I've lost the frequency
to make contact with it…

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
