Treasure Island

Mohammed Hassan (Piracy In The Mediterranean)

(3/3/1990 / Al Iskandarī yah)

Mercy Land


put your arrow in the flames
then put it in my rotten flesh
through the look into the glass
there's too many broken rays

stand up and make a step
to the darkness and rise your hand
kneel down on your knees
and beg him to enter mercy land

here the lines but I can't read
the words I wrote in vain
she always lies but I disbelieved
when I said she's my distant pain

some day she will come to you
she'll scream at your pale face
and when you are shocked
just look at the smile on her face

I have not hid the rights
within my heart
I have declared my wish
all my songs about the pain

you are better faithless to the truth
even if neither do I believe
you are better breathless to that world
even if neither do I breath

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
