Treasure Island

Laughing With You Fool
Hey, I’m The Fool To Be
You Think That You Are Cool
Well, Laugh Again With Me
The Red Draws To A Close
They Want Me To Impose
The Wild And Savage Beast
They’re Dreaming Of The East
Collect The Inner Thoughts
And Put Them To The Test
Work Out Which Goes First
There Really Is No Best
Motivate And Work
Your Art Collectively
Chase Away The Blues
Populate Respectively
In Another Time
I’m Choosing Different Wine

And The Ones That Are
The Simplest Here By Far
Choose The Same as Thee
Choose The Same As Me
Hey, You want To Be
Exactly
Like All The Rest
You Are The Best
And Unlike Some
In The West
My Dreams, Do They Work Out
I Want To Then Get Out
Then To Then Unfold
And Sing Here In The Cold
Like I’m Getting Old
Well, So Am I
In The Freezing Cold

The Dancing In The Sky
Is Just One Great Big Lie
But How Can You Tell
The Breaking Of The Spell
In The Inner Light
I Think I’m Turning White
Then Again I’m Not
Getting What I Got
Then Again Pretend
This Is Utter Rot…

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—
