Little Island - Poem by David Darbyshire

Four palm trees
on a pile of sand
surrounded by green water
and just enough place to stand

no nothin
as far as the eye can see
also no fresh water
no food nothing for me

I don't care
cause this place is great
but I am starting to think
I made a big mistake

My back starts to burn
my throat is rasp, rasp dry
if there's one thing I'll learn
it's not to look at the sun, in the sky

Ah ya it was very, very lucky for me
a boat floats by and I jump and wave
shit, they just keep goin, me they didn't see
So to this little island, I am the slave
