Treasure Island

Ananta Madhavan


Defendant to Jury


I am adduced
as argument
in proof of life's
absurdity.

Do you have cause,
I ask of you,
To press a charge
So darn'd absurd?

When all of you
must be aware,
my reasoned plea
Could be absurd?

Verdict:
NOT ABSURD.

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