Treasure Island

Mark R Slaughter


Poem


This bloody poem I read -
It's blown apart me ‘ed, and
Ever since, I've never slept a wink!

This poem, if truth be said,
‘As made me eyes go red - and me
Sanity is edging on the brink!

Read not this poem in bed -
For those who've just been wed, it'll
Wash your nuptials down the bloody sink!

Don't try to understand the theme -
There's nothing there to even deem
A notion of an underlying meaning,

And should you dare to even try, then
Rest assured, you'll only cry, and
Find yourself ahangin' from the ceiling

    Be careful what you read before bed time!
    I always make the mistake of getting my mind going.
    And then it turns into another long, sleepless night. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
