Treasure Island
(6/19/2021)


Brother Bollocks
yearns
for a time
when he could be
entertained

enchanted

even
enthralled

by some
fantastical
book

or magical
movie

missing
the days
before he knew
more
than he wanted
to know

about
his fellow
humans

their
consuming
society

their
own tragic
magic

today
Brother Bollocks
simply wonders
about facts

science

veracities

legalities

profits

and only
in a modern
sense

gored oxen

he is not
lost at sea

but asea
in a lost
world

hoping
for the best

expecting
the least

from storylines
so true

that they
they seem
the best
fiction
