Treasure Island

ally gunther


Well baby don't you work on,
Counting the seconds,
You're distracted for
You're just sleeping around.

Rules don't apply to you,
An Oedipal complex,
As long as they ditch the outer layers.

But how long will that last for?
Does the buzz stay?
Blow it all away.
Keep the pleasure.
Make em' sway,
And swoon.
With physicalities,
Outwardly beautiful

But can you fit it all in?
Your mind's blocked,
Like a lost,
Game of tetris.
Arms dam walls
Filled to capacity,
It's a wonder,
You don't overflow.
Clothes lost in the tatters of your tardiness
Too late whoops you've built up the battlements.
Polish your nails sweetie
Make em' all pretty,
Nevermind the underneath,
The needy and gritty,

Too bad mummy's,
Not around to set some rules,
To busy to review,
Your harmful principles.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
