Treasure Island

Will Althen

(7/19/93-TBA / The District)

Eye's Open


The world is quite here
If I told you I knew what I’m sayin’ I’d be lying here
People who are greedy and dying to need me wish they could see what I’m writing here
If life needs a bull market, then I’m a bear
I’ma bear witness to this pseudo-psycho sickness that’s everywhere
This is a testament, because the older testaments left me bare
Let me share what harks with it, becoming everything I’m not
And it’s not forgiven
Just as I am let it be to you
Open up your eyes and see what’s true.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
