Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Stop, Top!


Sin!
With the four horns on the golden altar;
Sin, in!
In you with the muse of hate;
Of the truth!
You can't stop it;
Stop, top!
Try to overcome your sins.
Lust!
Destroying the world;
Lust!
Strapped with bombs around your waist;
And, ready to kill people you don't even know.

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,
