Treasure Island

Gaylord Munemo

(20 May 1991 / Masvingo)

Enigma


Then it became known in my mental faculty,
Rewind my life, the intentions were altered,
I fell for blue yet I found myself red,
Can I take the road I long left again?
The storm took you away before I got to you
The winds carried me before you recognized me,
What a blatant enigma

Such became the tragedy of the evens,
Perhaps the odds were never with us,
Yet the panacea remains forever ours,
To build that which we ought for,
Or destroy that we are trying to mend

I behold the fair hairy on your cheeks,
Your lips twisting with glee,
Very cheerful in your colorful beads,
I ponder upon you walk,
Your waist shifting sideway as your
Pair archly and curvy buttocks swift,
Amnesia, I forget myself and remember you
I waited too long maybe,

And thus I hold dear to thyself,
And so I reached unto you,
I found you resting in another's arms,
Yes the storm took you away
What a blatant enigma

Poem of the Day

"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—
