Treasure Island

Tom Higgins

(Egremont)

Chances Are?


The likelihood of seeing,
a non-terrestrial, intelligent, being,
who greets you with a friendly wave, and,
announcing that his name is Dave,
he then asks you to take him to your leader,
is about as probable as hearing,
that the day is actually nearing,
when equality and fairness,
replace the general, couldn't care less
attitude which today is rather prevalent,
and which is actually quite malevolent.
What do you think,
dear reader?

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
