Treasure Island

What's Bad For The Goose


Succour succour
She screams
Higher and higher
Hoping it would reach farther
But his yell outlouds hers
Till the voices quieten

Verily, death comes with it's torment
Especially when the head detaches from the body
And the hands go separate ways
And pool of blood
Flows freely
They die again and again
While this death stares them in the eyes

It is just an order to kill
So shall it be
Your image symbolises death
Your presence signifies the end
The weak, women and children
Plants and animals alike
All in your nest

They just wanted to live
And have a life's glimpse
Their throats you slit
Innocent they were
Again, you smiled your way away

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is sad to see people getting killed mercilessly for selfish reasons. Many countries are under attack, the killing doesn't just stop. So sad.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
