Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Totally Confused


Got the moon over my left shoulder
as the sun rises on my right,
the sun says its morning
while the moon says no its night.
I’m half asleep and half awake,
but totally confused,
I wish one of them;
either the sun or the moon
would make up their mind
as to whether it is day or night.
Should I be getting up
or should I be going to bed.
Because at this moment
I am just a tad totally confused.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
