Treasure Island

Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)

My Magic Stone


It's your friend when we need one
When your head ache with throbbing pain
The anointed numbing relief given
Joy from discomfort, strife and twinge
The lion put to shield us
Conquering which ills us inside
My magic stone made of components
Here in hand for a single price
The solution to your issues
My magic stone prolong life and is approved
Your sleep when the world makes you restless
When you're tired beat down with rules
The truth is not its wisdom, per say
It doesn't talk in lectures or in schools
Or answers questions to the masses which speak
Nor utter any sound that we know
Armored here, a miracle of cures
Escape and relief from your woes
My magic stone of science
That's tiny: yet, so bold!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
