Treasure Island

Nicholas Nikolov

(April.6,1988 / Toronto)

The Unheard Silent Protests

A little more than two decades of suffering,
The undoubtedly resilient people have recently been demanding
For a rest-of-the-civilized-world standard of living.
The mafia and criminal government must be exiting
Someday soon and announce that they are resigning;
These citizens for that length of time have been striving;
The blend of generations together desire in accomplishing
What generations past were unable to do. Like then, wanting
A better present for a greater future – desperately hoping
That the parliamentary manipulators’ hopeful surrendering
In the near months to come. Until this day, the marching
Will continue in its delightful theatrical carnival-like parading
Atmosphere – ever since the very start of this outstanding
Assuredly harmonious uproar, which is surely awe-inspiring
During the half-century days’ worth of throughout. Captivating
Themselves with their deceitful fallacies in misrepresenting
The truth in the eyes, minds, hearts and souls of
Much like the different faith-devoted bordering
Country in the southeast where the revolting
Is far more deadly and certainly more sporadic life-threatening
Clashes. The head honcho assumed that he was offending
His discontented Ataturk-sympathizers freedom-loving
Citizens. As they’ll be never stopping,
As their Slavic neighbours will continue chapulling.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
