Treasure Island

Margaret Aberdeen


People In the City


… people eat junk food and curry
because they are always in a hurry

… people collide into each other
without saying sorry

… people talk on mobile phones
in high pitch tones

… people hardly ever smile
because they are paranoid or shy

… people suffer from obesity
because they drive everywhere

… people inhale polluted air
because of fumes in the atmosphere

… people litter the streets
because the penalty fines are too cheap

… people commit crimes in the streets
because there aren’t enough cops on the beat

… people are always late
because the railway tracks are out of date

… people live on credit
because they pay bills by direct debit

… people are unable to relax
because they pay high income tax

… people suffer from stress
because they never rest

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
