Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Francis


Francis, fan, is, as, can, sin, car, cars, an, scar, far!
Licking like a cat,
Walking like a robot,
Unsold!
How can you live without me?
Women, omen, men!
Tested before in use;
But, the temptation is here.

Woman, Oman, man!
Like a man,
Like a woman,
Available;
The burning man!
The burning woman!
All in the name of war;
But, let us all live in peace.

Fuse, refuse!
In Las Vegas County Jail;
Agents of Satan! !
leading the foolish people around.
March, much!
Clark County Jail;
Book, booking!
Code 5.

Agents of Satan! !
Leading the foolish people around;
All in the name of the so-called churches,
And, taking away the little funds of the poor.
Code 7,
Call me and, i will call you back;
For, Satan is leading you away to hell.

March, car, arch, arc, ram, am, harm, Ham;
Cooking like a chef,
Singing like a bird,
Barking like a dog!
Dancing like a bear,
Working like a wolf!
Sleeping like a horse,
Black and White!
Black design with white screen.

Chewing like a squirrel,
Hissing like a snake,
Drinking like fool! !
Code 51;
Ocular,
Climbing like a monkey!
Moving like a cow,
Swimming like a duck,
Speaking like a parrot!
Nippy;
But, you need true love on this muse of life to move on.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"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—
