Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)


James! James! Oh James
How could you?
I caught you sneaking a view
Of a freshly open grave not completely covered
The wooden coffin lay there bidding its last farewell
To the sunlight of the living
And you thought to yourself
Would it be wonderful if I only can?
Jump in the hole and remove the lid
And peek into the dead corpse
This will cap my top achievement
Of dissecting toads in the lab
Then I can go back and brag
About my devilish deed into the macabre
And just in case if my colleagues do not believe me
I'll make sure to snap a shot with my iphone
A self-portrait of the two of us
The joining of life and death-
The union of Marguerite and Mephistopheles
In the chapel of the macabre

James: could not help myself
The title of your Poem sucked me in
Like the eye of the tornado'
When I saw my name Paul
Headlining your new poem'
I enjoyed reading it brought me back to my mischievous childhood
When I used to pluck the wings from flies
A la Marqui de Sade torture
I loved the way you weaved your poem
I thought it was clever and very entertaining
I will keep an eye on you

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
