Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Daredevil-She


On social media daredevil-she openly declares
she does not believe in any Knight in Shining
Armour or marriage and love, she only believes
in cold cash, grab as much as she can and run
before having to pay for financial gain

She has no love in her heart, it’s not her fault,
it’s her deficient nature and karma and she shall
survive, now the adventure is over and she can
rejoice in her postings to Facebook, she is free
to return to the beach and the sea

Imagine a Knight trying to win her heart by buying her
a second-hand car and paying her credit cards, she
has her eye on bigger fish, a playboy with a beach-
house and a bank account needing her attention
to reduce the amounts, this Knight

Was only a starting point to hone her skills, she is
going to find the right man to relieve from his money
without having to bother with imitation friendship and
love, a marriage is just a transaction and the world
abounds in wealthy suckers, just right

To be plucked under guise of love, how satisfying to
give romance a bad name by fleecing those willing
victims who offer help in exchange for love which
she finds demeaning, hope the whole world be-
comes as cynical as she is…

Far south the lift,
