Treasure Island

Rulers Of The World


Wake up and take a notice,
With a focus on the motive.
It's time to boot delusions,
And remove all veils to see...
Some people do what they will do,
Just to get attention.
Some people do what they will do,
For giggles and kicks.
And...
Some people do what they will do,
For their satisfaction.
To maximize a recognition,
Without the facts.

The few care less who suffers,
Or who they defeat.
The few care less who suffers,
With a mindlessness they keep...
Believing themselves rulers of the world.

The few care less who suffers,
Or who they defeat.
The few care less who suffers,
With a mindlessness they keep...
Believing themselves rulers of the world.

Some people do what they will do,
For giggles and kicks.
Some people do what they will do,
For no benefit.
Or a profit to gain,
But flush themselves down a drain.

The few care less who suffers,
Or who they defeat.
The few care less who suffers,
With a mindlessness they keep...
Believing themselves rulers of the world.
With a doing done,
To hurt everyone.
With a doing that brings ruin to occur.

Wake up and take a notice,
With a focus on the motive.
It's time to boot delusions,
And remove all veils to see...
Some people do what they will do,
Just to get attention.
Some people do what they will do,
For giggles and kicks.
Believing themselves rulers of the world.

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,
