Treasure Island

SQC Chevalier

(4-18-1966 / Elizabeth, New Jersey)


Rules and consequences of the planetary dream
someone wronged someone right so we demean.
Of course we don’t pick someone up when they fall
We judge them as a trouble to society
so we put them in confined walls.
Some can play the system till the end
get out of going to prison when they should
be there even though no one showed up
in court to defend.
Defend themselves to
what the gun shooter did do.
The jury was not there and had no real clue.
That is what happened to the lady who would
one day throw me in jail- -
she did it with her boyfriend who was high
on coke, a drunk who started to yell.
But thank God someone
Innocent has an attorney who can defend.
I am told that there are No Victims
For I see the higher calling of my soul
to show what happens in jails
for people on the outside don’t really know.
For we agreed before WE came here—
to have circumstances to help humanity heal.
Or to learn a lesson that our soul felt had was dear.
So maybe we should ask psychics what this is all about?
Maybe it would give us answers to help us figure this all out.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
