Treasure Island

Wilfred Mellers

(March 5,1962 / Kinston, Jamaica, West Indies)

Madess Speaks

In a heartless world I came forth screaming
Star spangle lights were not gleaming

Baptize to the world I came forth violently
Out of it we all must go silently

Circumcised dreams only moments old
Covered my wringcled body from the cold

Castrated hopes are dangles from an oak tree
Strange fruits it grows for all to see

In the minds eye I see dripping liquid walls
Under crystal skies of green water falls

Dancing Shadows in my darken room
The mind plays tricks as vultures loom

Sacrifices the innocents of the collective consciousness
The soul survives despite mankind’s wickedness

Mercury inducted psychosis on the unsuspecting masses
Mustered gray clouds the rainbow passes

Neglect I choose by those who are watching
Destroying ourselves the devil is laughing

As the woman goes into labor
The war mugger rattles his saber

As the earth turns it starts to burn
Mankind is doomed we’ll never learn

They let go the dogs of war
No matter who, when, or where you are

A mothers cries as there sons body lay
Blacken skies as the bodies decay

Irradiated grounds of orange clay
No more cavery to save the day

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
