Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


A true lament


Clowny words contents nil
Scribbled symbols shallow substance
Rise in numbers base eroded

Stuffing rubbish done for statistics
Introspection espionage intelligence
Sincere efforts seldom go waste

Words are there to knit them neat
Frame together sentence formed
Treat readers with treats of wisdom!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
