Treasure Island

Darren David Weaver

(14th February)

Ignorance


Ill features lurk around each corner
Good seems way off beam,
Living future times
Sinking in the present.
Grand plans with a hollow centre
Repentance the earth shaker,
A vision undiscovered
Scars unrecovered.
Snakes patiently wait at your feet
Craving, your blood's so sweet,
Driver at your wheel
Learning not to feel,
Numb bodies flood throughout
Still losing a biased bout.
Taking flight with rusty wings
Ignorance causes other things.

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
