Treasure Island

Rose Lu ( Bing Hua )


Forbidden Fruit


In the Garden of Eden
A bright blossom
Bears a smiling red fruit

That enables the green leaves around it
To hide their greed

But a wind from afar
Picks that apple without a hitch
And carries away
The floating-off shade of Eve

Leaving behind a faint scent of the forbidden fruit
Lingering on
In the empty Garden

    Sad Beginnings
    Lost my winnings
    Food stamps provided
    By the U.S. Government.
    They've made me a gangster
    And humanitarian
    They handed me Rifles
    And jugs full of liquor
    And said, only the dark ones!
    I shot my employer
    And hired a lawyer
    Made me a warrior
    No longer a voyeur
    For Tom and his Sawyer
    The Mark of the Twain
    The Huckle and Berry
    The saw and the chain.
    Informal insignia
    I'm dreaming of India
    Here in Los Angeles
    With sirens and cigarette butts
    My cross-bred dogs howl
    Like true sopranos
    And I enjoy the truths
    That we willingly share.
    For God is abundant
    Of every republic
    And multi complected
    Our Gods are but One.
    They all are the Higher
    That humans inspire
    The one we shall be like
    The day we retire.
    It hurts from the grinning
    I'm tired of winning.
    The made me the poor
    I come out with more
    They make me a slave
    I mastered the trade
    They made me the prey
    I hunted the game
    They made me minority
    I rose to authority
    They made me a resident
    I chose the next president
    They made me a Victim
    i fathered their children
    They made me a martyr
    I mated their daughter
    They made me a pion
    I lated their eon
    They made me a sinner
    I made ME a winner.

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
