Treasure Island

John Carter Brown


October (An Acrostic)


Of all the bad things that
Can happen to a person in life,
The very greatest,
Over and above derision,
Breach of trust, or lack of
Empathy from friends, must be
Rejection from his or her loved ones.

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
