Treasure Island

Real Lovers


Oh this love of ours so grand and fake

Do I love the homeless in you?
Do I feel the mercy
Do I see you as every lost woman
or are you a thing to get me off

Phony romance doesn't include everyman

Do you see the dying soldier in me?
Do you see the beggar and the indigent
Do you want to help all the men of the world
or is your romance a premise of opulence

Real lovers feel the plight of the world

You are the refugee crying
I am the man in the asylum
You are the bag lady begging
I am the laid off worker in a divorce

Shall our torch burn with justice

Yeah we need a pillow
Yeah we need some space
Compassion needs to revitalize
Romance should be based on virtue

M darling wasn't Mother Teresa beautiful?

Let's not just be mannequins of fashion
Let's not just be vain and superficial
Let's not use sexuality like a drug
Let's be worth while and filled with real love

Real lovers are assets to all of mankind

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
