Treasure Island

Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

The child of knowledge


The need for speed had us darkly betrayed
a sacrifice laid upon the asphalt,
it was the child of knowledge that swayed,
and from thine arms fell off - cause of drunk malt.

The child of truth abandoned fell off our Kawasaki,
he broke his leg wickedly, society is gawky!

I didn't blame thee, for being offhanded,
as with thy left held a slice of pizza,
and tried to keep our child single-handed,
- the pizza man was an evil creature.

Inactive was my brain because that slice,
was the single left from a large special,
two six-packs left us in a grim demise,
that slice-taste was extraterrestrial.

The child of truth abandoned fell off our Kawasaki,
he broke his leg wickedly, society is gawky!

The pizza tantalized thus, our taste buds;
upon the saddle to reach three hundred,
predestined was cause of Milwaukee suds,
the child of truth to be Ninja-stranded.

The child of truth abandoned fell off our Kawasaki,
he broke his leg wickedly, society is gawky!

The child of truth abandoned fell off our Kawasaki,
he broke his leg wickedly, society is gawky!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
