Treasure Island

Valerie Dohren

(13 January 1947 / Southport)

Aquarius


The Fish are dying
Polluted our crystal clear waters
Our once green valleys, choked and grey
With the debris of living
Lost is all Virginity
And the orbs clamber through space, gasping for breath

The trees are lifeless
Wilted the flowers
Only their deathly form remains
Impinged upon my soul - I grieve
For nature`s stolen life

Yet now a new Age dawns amidst the turmoil
Promise of a Golden Age for man
(Insensitive automaton)
And everywhere the cry:
'Big Brother is watching you'
'BIG-BRO-THER-IS-WATCH-ING-YOU'

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
