Treasure Island

The Jaundiced Eyes

Man is never sick
Of the severe nick

In circle divide
Put humanity aside

Hiding in the hole
Religions play the role

All the opposite faiths
Sword unsheathes

In the other’s back
Stab and blood slake

For heinous acts
Divide men into sects

Everybody behind
Terrorist of a kind

To banish others
Sisters and brothers

Muslims and Jews
And Christian hews

Hindus and Buddhists
Are all fascists

If they deviate
And alleviate

The real teachings
And the preachings

Of their saints
Differently paints

Who is to come?
Dispose this bomb

Of jaundiced eyes
What’s, who’s and why’s

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;
