Treasure Island

who criticizes unripe cherries

'uncovered glowing red head'
(John Cleland)

Who criticizes unripe cherries
you zebra moving down the savannah slope

where is the sense of mocking here dormant male camel
long farting between a couple of yawning & peeing females

why tear apart the lustrous pastel blue peacock neck
only envy destroys its object
O glowing red head
why master heavy playful brown bears
barbed wire crowns the locked gate

in the mother's name what a path to freedom
a male chimpanzee bumps into a female from behind
only envy destroys its object

Who finds fault with ripe currant
gibbon playfully hanging in a long arm

a savannah giraffe makes a drawing
of some protected children behind the fence

no pain associated with
penguins swimming under the surface for fun

only envy destroys its object

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
