Treasure Island

April Humason

(Fort Worth, Texas)

Nowadays


We're bonded by break ups
Were attached by adultery
We're legalized by laws
We're separated by sexually
We're relatives by rapes
We're grouped by gangs
We're housed by hatred
We're corrupted by cravings
We're damaged by divorces
Were blended by blood
We're justified by jealousy
We're supported by scandals
We're assaulted by addictions
We're violated by violence
We're devastated by death
We're married by madness
We're partnered by pain
We're classed by color
We're willowed by war
We're challenged by children
We're fostered by fatalities
We're poisoned by perfection
We're terrorized by terrorist
We're suffocated by strangers
We're murdered by mothers
We're fought by family
We're forgot by fathers
We're disturbed by demons
We're fooled by fantasies
We're greeted by God
We're neighbored by nightmares
We're massacred by mental illness

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
