Treasure Island

- Whatever: : Humour, Inspiration


The sun is shining, so what
The birds are chirping, who cares?
The dogs are barking, what for?
The river's flowing, only from here to there

Things aren't going right, will it ever turn
Are obstacles put into place just so I will learn
How to overcome them, whatever's thrown my way
Must I repeat this lesson, day after day?

Challenges 101, surely I've passed it by now
I know I've failed it a couple of times, well it really is a cow
I'm more than ready for Smooth Sailing 201
My time with Challenges I'd like to be done

Are you listening to what I'm saying?
Or is this just some meaningless braying
Come on Professor just give me a pass
So I can finally exit this class

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,
