Treasure Island

Truth Is Not One Of Their Assets


Appreciation is seldom expressed,
To parents doing their very best.
Or to those giving to others,
With nothing from them expected.
Or even from the ones,
Riding along on coattails...
After weighing their self-interests,
In a plagiarizing unknown but to be done...
Once they've arrived to destinations.
To have those unsuspecting,
But believing comments heard that come,
Of a proclaiming themselves with legendary status.
Or even accepting the notion to have it perceived.

'Well...
When given thought to who implemented true deeds,
The deceiving of their false activities...
Is legendary.
No one should expect from them,
A revealing of any appreciation expressed...
To those they have stolen a success they profess.
Afterall...
Attention is given to whomever embellishes,
With exaggerations stated and done at their best.'

~Are you calling them liars? ~

'That term would be too deserving.
Let's say truth is not one of their assets.
If assets are what they have.'

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
