Treasure Island

The newspapers


Now-a-days
I don't like to read the newspapers
It's full of bad and sad news:
War, Corruption, Murder
Rape, Robbery, Flattery
Conspiracy, Drug Dealing
Women and Child Trafficking
And so on

I long for breaking good news
But I become disheartened

The politicians and the religious leaders
All talk about peace and world peace
But peace remains a daydream

Alas
Peace is in their words
But greed is in their hearts
