Treasure Island

George Egba


Ice For Eyes


A moment present a journey
Life and love lost in a table of lonely coffee
Dim eyes wide daydreaming honey
Amiss internal flames the world seem silly
Thanks a touch reveal another foul at forty
Surely no death yet solemn anniversary
For evidence the world look dizzy
Stressed up and lazy
More test unveil testers crazy
Wheres the solution a feeling more dizzy
In a warm coffee table chilling icy
Denying a dispensation busy
Now no longer spicy
Though rough coast easy
It falsehood i say
The universe in me heavy
For a future so cloudy
All things dangling so lanky
Melting meek the mighty in me

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
