Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

The Mad And The Bad


Cauldrons of evil
cooked and ready
waiting to be poured
over humanity

Badness is not born
badness is made
the bad ones have had their lives
destroyed another way
now they have learned the evil ways
that made them this way

The sinned become the sinner
to ease their pain
they end up as mad as a hatter
ready to strike again

The chain needs to stop
a link needs to drop
save the sinned
and stop the sinner

    Nature don't take chances
    When evil is required,
    Cruel wicked snide and searing glances,
    Emerge from hidden pridel

    To send the children down the mines,
    The wage slaves to their chores,
    Here comes the men of salt and brine
    There are Vikings on the shore. (Report) Reply

    The chain needs to stop

    save the sinned
    and stop the sinner

    the meaning for sin is the same in all dictionaries of religions. simply bad actions that hurt us and others physically, emotionally, economically, socially and many many more. Let us stop sinning! good poem! (Report) Reply

    A brilliant write, There is so much sin it`s gone beyond bad now, will a link in the chain ever drop, sorry to say, I doubt it Dave, although I pray it will. (Report) Reply

    There are so many factors responsible for badness, social, psychological, and maybe even genetic, but its a difficult cycle to break. Great write Dave. (Report) Reply
