Treasure Island

Francis Duggan


Oh You Without Sin


Oh you without sin come and cast the first stone
Since a fair go for all you've been known to condone
You've always been truthful you never tell lies
But you won't cast the stone since you are too wise,
Oh you without sin you don't put others down
And you have no yearning for wealth and renown
You don't speak ill of others do a good deed each day
And for to help those in need of help you go out of your way,
You will never be famous or a proclaimed millionaire
Since the money you earn with the needy you share
If everyone were like you there would not be poverty
And of war and racism the World would be free
And though you are free of sin the stone you will not cast
As you say the saint of tomorrow is the sinner of the past.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
