Treasure Island

Marvin Brato Sr

(March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

Betrayed


First impression last they say
but not till you experienced it one day
truly then one shall think it the other way
because for me it was the opposite that mark to stay

An acquaintance I have met
a man of stature and has wit
quite a gentleman that truly fit
all occasions as if he has no guilt

He has vast knowledge about anything
as if he possesses wisdom on everything
whatever query one would ask on something
factual answer he could easily raise with bearing

So whenever we go together in a meeting
people are amazed of his skills so pleasing
so whatever he request of me to be doing
I seemed proud to accomplish on trusting

Later we both have gained trust
as though many commit with thrust
for him to perform all their wishes as must
soon I found to be alone in cleaning the crust

The man once impressive the first time we met
have driven me into the dark pit of shame and shit
all the money he collected as part of his humanitarian dealt
had been a scam since the start using me as his innocent bait

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
