Treasure Island

Sylvia Chidi

(Germany)

People are people


Some people have all the aces
Some people are born with great faces
Some people don’t know how to tie shoe laces
And some people come from strange places

People are people
Complex or simple

Some people always leave behind traces
Some people take their time with slow paces
While others love to discuss different races
Some people need to wear regular braces

People are people
Strong of feeble

Some people cannot comprehend simple phrases
While others behave differently in different spaces
Some people love carrying strange suitcases
While other people love sampling a range of flower vases
Some people live in underground bases
And other people love when the memory erases

People are people
Few or ample
Just pick your sample

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
