Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Morality Pity Conscience Fails To Bridge Extreme Gaps


poverty safely sealed
vast continents away
is desirable who desires

to smell death
choking on perfume
disease stench

causing stomach to heave
flowers ulcers erupts across
stripped desolate landscapes

"we live
as they die
is a walk

between worlds"
morality pity conscience
fails to bridge extreme gaps

"we live as they die is a walk between worlds"

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,
