Treasure Island

C. Albert Andrews



Does my achievement upset you?
Why are you so haughty towards me?
Is it because your trap didn't catch me?
Or is it because reality has set me free?
Just like an eagle sailing high, I will fly.

Does my deportment make you think?
Why do you look at me as if I am stink?
Is it because I'm not in handcuffs and chains?
Or is it because of my raise to fame?
Just like an eagle sailing high, I will fly.

Does my sister sexiness offend you?
Why is she the talk around the office water fountain?
Is it because she walks with pride?
Or is it because she looks like a diamond from behind?
Just like an eagle sailing high, she will fly.

Does the word slavery bother you?
Why do I hear, "We should forget"
Is it because of its bitter past?
Or is it because of its dirty bloody path?
Just like the eagle sailing high, descendants of slaves will fly.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
