Treasure Island

Raj Arumugam


please leave me alone


please leave me alone
I don’t want to think;
please leave me alone
I ‘m happy to be a slave


please leave me alone
I only want to be led;
please leave me alone
for I only want a book
that tells me what I should do


please leave me alone
for I’ve found what I need;
and it’s just so good
as others have done
all the thinking for you and me


please leave me alone
all I want are commandments;
please leave me alone
for I have all the instructions


please leave me alone
I’ve got all my answers;
please leave me alone
my masters
have expertly fixed my brain


and if you don’t leave me
alone now
I’ll call them in,
and I assure you,
they’ll gladly fix you
right and proper





so just leave me alone
for I’m well and content;
with the prescribed course
I’m saved,
and I’ve been assured,
I’m going to Heaven
where I’ll be an angel
with an unlimited supply
of ecstasy pills


so, I say,
please leave me alone
I don’t want to think;
please leave me alone
I ‘m happy to be a slave

    lovely poem..yes it is a satire and cynical too..a very responsible write..i wrote one 'a seed within' with a similar thought....be aware of the fixers..they might turn your neck around..you might be walking backwards...i take this into my favs (Report) Reply

    Hmmm...a little cynical for my taste, but you make your point quite well! I like the form and the repetition.

    Amen to that brother! God forbids thinking for yourself. Oh wait, isn't that the eleventh commandment they never talk about? (Report) Reply

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
