Treasure Island

Gabriel Gauci Maistre

(Pieta, Malta)


How can one
Swear an oath
To take care of their wife
To take care of their husband
For better or for worse
For richer
For poorer
In sickness and in health
Till death do them part
Signing a contract with God
And wanting to break such a contract

God has made it clear
That divorce goes against his way
But man is a greedy kind
And wants only what is best for him

Divorce has ruined civilisation
In every country it has been established
And now
Malta is next

What is to come
If such a system is introduced
What shall happen
To the true meaning
Of the term

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
