Treasure Island

Obselete


Carving two names,
Into a coke-bottle.
Left outside a bookstore,
A thinker,
Scratches,
A likeness to perfection-
Into the market square.

No need for modesty,
You don’t need to impress,
Keep going-
I’ll be your princess.
A little chivalry,
And they’re all obsolete.
This happiness-
Mechanised.
Opposes naturalised.
And your likened nature’s,
Winning.
Watch me make her obsolete.

Can’t you feel my heartbeat thinning?
Laying train-tracks,
To my past-
Cycling,
Quickly to my heart.
You’ve a direct line.
And it seems I’ve the same.
Sir Lancelot.
To your ways.

And you’ll never know of a maiden like me,
I’ll be singing,
You’ll be grinning.
1920’s beats a swinging,
Styling your hair that way.
Making the ladies sway,
(And the men too!)
I’m that way,
Yours. To. Woo.

No need for modesty,
You don’t need to impress,
Keep going-
I’ll be your princess.
A little chivalry,
And they’re all obsolete.
This happiness-
Mechanised.
Opposes naturalised.
And your likened nature’s,
Winning.
Watch me make her obsolete.

(Think fast;
Because the geometric pattern's changing...)

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;
