Treasure Island

Daleen Enslinstrydom

(25-02-1967 / Springs, South Africa)

A Jack-Russell called Jack


With brown stripes in his eyes
he peeps at me
as if he does want to say:
“Mom, did you loose some of your love for me?
Why don’t you tickle my tummy anymore? ”

He turns his spotted face towards me.
“Mom, did you loose some of your love for me?
When are you coming back? ”
He turns his body and sings his love song
and when I do return he jumps for joy.

He is a funny guy that only eats on command
and the saucy meatballs seem to be his boss.
He tries to bite them but they always get away.
“Mom, ” will always be his plea:
“Please come and break those stupid things for me.”

Knocking at the door is his waking call in the morning
but when my darling comes to visit,
Jacky will always slip by to mark off his territory,
lovingly jumping onto my lap
while in his eyes he challenges Gert
as if he knows that he is the king of my heart
and he is just a dog
but thinks that he is my child.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
