Treasure Island

Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)

The Ladder


Ones upwards climb seems aimlessly trying
Shadow demons and family you'll face
From darkness lowest depth you must ascend
Break free from its womb of disgrace
Darkness is the realm of uncertainties
Within its grasp one must find truth
Birth of the lie, death and sin
You’re its witness, its resurrected and its reproof
Confusion rules its dynasty
The inspired have to end the doubt
Lost souls is its delight
You, the avenger, have to bring others out
Ascend beyond out of its forgetfulness pit
The earth state and its Satanic desire
Above its firmament mid-way
Inside the division of the deep cut
Beyond eve and morn called Night and Day
One step upwards on the ladder
One layer of darkness lost

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
