Marooned Island Amidst An Ocean Of Rabbles

Marooned Island Amidst An Ocean Of Rabbles short poem

Photo by Luis Marina

Times are fast flowing
taking away that
Precious bit of prudence
we held so close to soothe
A strung up nerve
from letting loose.
Today, imagine
Getting caught
At the cross wire of a
Boy of ten frail years
Asking for DNA proof
To quell a nagging bug
He sure is not an adopted menace
Unwillingly brought in like
A stray cat on a rainy day

Time, for sure
Is changing fast
Ebbing away that
Faint scent of milk
Off a dried out bust.
Islands drift,
Crying inside
A dying strain of a
Lullaby somewhere.
