Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Was Any Of This Meant To Be Intentional?


We introduced the confusion and conflicts,
With our deceit.
What else do you wish to have revealed?

'I have a question.'

Yes.
What is it?

'Was any of this meant to be intentional? '

Of course.
But none of us could foresee,
Placing the blame on someone else...
Would come to effect,
The masquerading of our credibility.
And we are here,
Once again...
To beg of you a forgiveness.

'And...
If this should happen again? '

We will be here to beg of you a forgiveness.
What is it that you don't understand,
About this process?
Our values and standards are kept very high.

'Oh.
Oh, okay! '

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
