Treasure Island

Steinar Olafsen

(October 15,1951 / Oslo, Norway)

One Last Song


One last song for the wicked
One last song and a cigarette
I see you standing in the back
forming a silhouette

One last song for the really weird
One last song and a big cigar
I see you dancing by yourself
Wondering who you are

One last song for the wild at heart
One last song for you my dear
I see you crying in the dark
clinging to a beer


wish you would dance like gods
like the devil's at your heels
show your partner
all the moves and tell
the devil how it feels

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
