Treasure Island

Gloria Seseng

(1977 November 18 / NW South Africa)

...the world is too much with us!


A circuit that caters for all,
Wrapped in; ready for a banquet!
10 gallons of time served,
smiles at your persistent foolishness!
Pursue to acquire,
for their appreciation!
Lord please take me to a safe refuge!
The devil is now here seen,
in our long lost ghetto!
Every puppet is glue,
to those with the loot!
Rip bones from mind peace,
to make me part that’s faulty!
All sel-fish-ness!
We all fish, dead halfway the torrent!
The world is too much with us!

A ripple of decision to fight severe verdict!

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:
