Treasure Island

GRANT FRASER

(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

To those of you...


My apologies
it's only been almost 49 years
for me, and nothing's really changed
that much down here,

So I for one,
will say 'sorry'
for my part or lack
for that matter, in each and every
mechanism that's come to be or happened,

At least around where I live...

For the guilty on trial, forever guilty,
and everybody else an innocent
bystander,

Yes the world moves in mysterious waves...

As the monster once again, defies gravity,
and hits the front page, like a successful dart!

Yes - lets rattle all the cages!

For Aeon's to come and many many more happy
returns,

Yes, you are God and Dog
slit open with a knife,

Snarling little puppies of leisure,

Rub us with that strange endeavour...

Shoot a Star down our throats...why thank you?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
