Treasure Island

Ezra Rizle


Monster In Disguise


Lead a simple life
Two kids and a wife
Heart full of soul
Never lose control
That's how I was taught
And what I always sought
But when I had it all
The world seemed rather small
To that I had the answer
For I was a skillful dancer
One night the fire started
And with the family I parted.

Once the smoke I coughed
From my lungs went all aloft
I was free from the bonds
To see how the world responds
A town in which I was born
Shall be the next to mourn
For it was just a mile away
And I planned no delay
Shame they had so little sense
Just one guard up on the fence
Caught them on their back foot
All the heads went caput.

Over what happened next I often sweat
For it was the devil I had met
The road out of town I took,
And this is not something I would overlook,
Had a creature that to me did no harm
But nonetheless it's life I did disarm
Only then I spotted the eyes
It was me, my ultimate demise
It seems I'm just a monster in disguise.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
