Treasure Island

Pen anthony

(15 Nov / Nairobi)

man on the note


He stands tall, though am not sure if he's
sitting,
neatly dressed in a suit which am not sure it
is for i see only his coat
he is content to appear in the picture without
a smile
his pose tells of not what he felt that hour or
day
he must have been happy though he didnt let
it show
i atleast would have worn a grin
for i know every man/woman wouldnt mind
holding my picture in their hand
they would keep me in wallets and in btwn
their tits, and i wouldnt have to straighten my
coat
If only i was the man in the note.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
