Treasure Island

Glen Martin Fitch


Wooo! what a hateful,  
hurtful thing to say. 
Most people try 
to hide their ignorance.
It's harder then 
to take a counter-stance.
At this 
I will not blindly walk away.
To have things new or 
just the way they were.
We will our wants 
and push to make that change,
You crave reaction 
from a rough exchange,
but did you think 
I'd thank you for that slur?
Just so the noir anti-hero 
smacked his femme fatale,  
as if for her own good.
Who listens, changes 
when they feel attacked?
I lean but never lash 
although I could.
I'm tempted 
just to volley back 
your crap,
but no one,  
no way,  
ever needs a slap.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
