Treasure Island

Alex Kadzitu

(Mombasa, Kenya)


Quandary is quite quaint
Quarantined thoughts leave no quarter for qualm
Queasy quests produce no quibbles
The queer and querulous quelled to quietus

Query disquiet at your own sufferance
Quivers of diffidence in the act itself
Quixotic difference is in the sequence of consequence
One leads to another the other is prudence

Quit quaking in your quasi –quiescence
Quizzed on their quirky nature
Quickly quit their quacking
Quaking in their fear of improbity

Quintessentially this addendum is obsolete
A redundant pendant on an overly long quatrain
Quickly ripped from quicksand’s quagmire
Quite quaint is quandary quit querying

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
