Treasure Island

Steven Harris


The Modern World.


Its all a lie
they tie everything up in a cute knot
show you smily faces on t-shirts
shoes with badges and shiny lights
phones that make funny noises
and play funny videos
t.v shows with poeple who are much better off
but have 'so many problems'
singing shows where they all sound the same
and all have a had bad time in life.

The modern world fokes
a place where your given everything you want
everything you want in a nice shiny box
for a nice shiny price
it puts a large bright smile on your face
and a nice sum in the owners pockets
and they want more
they always come back for more.

The wants of the modern world
all in line
all waiting for the next bargin
are we all happy people
all in line
all under one command
buy, buy, buy
and they will keep selling
all for the good of the poeple
and the pockets of the powerful
stand in line
we have everything you need.

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,
