Treasure Island

Dresses And Reality


'Cute little dresses
with cute little prices.'
Do you know how sick you sound?

There are people on the street,
they barely have enough to eat.
Do you know how sick you sound?

'Let's go buy a dress
so that you can impress.'
Do you know how sick you sound?

There are people dying,
and we're not even trying.
Do you know how sick you sound?

'I know', you say,
as you turn and walk away.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
