Treasure Island

sidney hall (The Mad Poet)

(26/06/1968 / Zimbabwe)

Tomorrow's World


Darkness cursed the Earth and all there in
A blackness so dense concealing every piercing scream
Multitudes huddled in groups scattered on little fragments of land
As the Earth’s crust began to boil, under the feet of the damned
Burning flesh and sulphur filled the air
Causing the multitude to curse and swear

Some leap into the molten lava hoping they would die
Only to find they are alive as they sizzle and fry
Loved ones watch helpless waiting for their turn as they cry
As the earth’s crust gradually melts the people on the edge fall in
Grasping desperately at others to prevent the inevitable painful din

Burning trees heavily laden with human fruits
Surrender and collapse for they no longer have roots
Animals feral with pain and hunger
Rip flesh in their last effort to survive from the weak and the younger
Their end is a beginning of a new world
Of the pain and suffering for the blood they have spilled
The smoke concealed by the darkness denying it to pollute the sky
As the darkness hides their screams not allowing them to die...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
