Treasure Island

Godfrey Morris

(August 1,1982 / Kingston, Jamaica)

A Poem


A verse am I, in a twist,

Listen! You will hear, and get this gist

A prose, confounded in a diet of words

Holding expressions of virtue, to my world

One so hidden in simple complexities

Speak thus, in a whisper to receive a rhyme

A metaphor for the mysteries mime,

Seeking an imaginary audience to hear.

    Hahaha I love this poem! Broken the fourth wall so discreetly - a poem about a poem! May I invite you to read a poem I wrote remotely similar to yours titled The Poet. It's about the poet's process of conceiving his ideas. I'd love to know what you think and I'd greatly appreciate any comment you have on the poem! (Report) Reply

    this is a nice poem. i felt that at some places it went a little too prosaic... like, instead of Listen! you could have put Hark! that would have given it a nice poetic touch.. nevertheless... with small changes it is a wonderful poem (Report) Reply
