Treasure Island

Diana van den Berg

(4 November 1945 / Durban, South Africa)

In My Opinion


Killing simply because you are afraid
of a person or animal
is the act
of a coward,
a wimp,
a murderer.

Calling someone
an itch with a b,
a cow,
a pig,
or a snake
if the person
warrants criticism,
is an insult
to female dogs, cows, pigs and snakes.
