Treasure Island

Opsy Coucchy


Two Worlds, Two Tales


For only a meager time have I been above this crust
So short but yet so long experiences
One crust was red, stony and dusty
The other was green, grassy and chilly
One had kids clumsily chasing bare-footed across its face
The other had kids merrily skiing warm-footed across its face
Two distant tales from two distant worlds

For only a measly time have I lived on this terrestrial ball
So little but yet so numerous encounters
One ball was a widely acclaimed jungle where good never transcends
The other a broadly hyped paradise where all good descends
One had beautiful kings and queens, robed in gorgeous ankara attires
The other had careful princes and princesses, dressed in sumptuous skirts and suits
Two distant tales from two distant worlds

For only a little longer will I remain on this surface
Only a numbered years before my soul fades
Then will I have a friend to tell
About the whites and about the blacks
Sharing my long tales as I yell
Two worlds, Two tales I’ll see no more!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

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:
