. "She has gone astray,
She has 1 oat her way."
"She is so very bad,
She makes us all sad."
"She was ne'er any good,
SSo we ne'er understood,
Why men are so blind,

And she, out in the cold,
SWas barred from the fold
By "pure good" women
Who would never sin,
But only sit and judge,
And a sister besmirch.

"ON A SANDY BEACH"


I find heaps of solid comfort..,
-strolling on a sandy beach... for
k.. beside the deep blue ocean...
'Iheaven seems within my reach...
Ch' I'
,.all alone save for the sea gulls
; ...darting in and out the waves
...chattering with one another.
.r" like a group of wayward knaves
S:c .tender breezes touch my being
S...like a soft and warm caress -
...and inside my heart I feel
a iI am close to happiness...
|TtId that I could always journey
a..en a peaceful beach like this
'..I'ttlfe would be a thing of beauty
j.vere flowing with sweet bliss
,.so it is when tine allows me
1i stroll a sandy beach...
/-b14ide the deep blue ocean
seems within my reach.
Am eah


Sometime, when you take for anted,
Sometime, when you're feeling important ,
Sometime,.. when your ego's in bloom,
You're the best qualified in the room,
Sometime, when you feel that your going,
Would leave an unfilled hole,
S Just follow this simple instruction,
And see how it humbles your soul.
Take a bucket and fill it with watefi
Put your hand in it, up to the wrist;
Pull it out; and the hole that's remaihifg,
Is a measure of how youtll be missed
You splash all you please when you entij
You can stir up the water galore
But stop, and you'll find in a minute,
That it looks quite the same as before*
The moral in this quaint example,
Is to do just..the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself, but remember,
THEiEE'S NO INDISPENSABLE i1,AN


Marge Pokrzywa


Know then thyself, presume not God to scan,
The proper study fo mankind is Man.
Plac'd on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great:
With too much knowledge for the skeptic side,
With too much weakness for the stoic's pride,.
He hangs between; in doubt to act or rest;,
In doubt tu dee: himself a god or beast;
In doubt his mind or body to prefer;
Born but to die, and reasoning but to err.
SPope: Essay on Man



How readily we wish time spent revoked,
That we n ght try the ground again, where once
(Through inexperience,as we now perceive)
We missed that happiness we might thav found.

he is good-natured, too good-natured for

It was middle late afternoon, for the usual crowd had already left. The afternoon was lazy and Prow was just beginning to nod when Chinchiri had entered. Only the two-were there: Crow and Chinchiri were alone together. Now, you oust know that Crow is a kind of stout in the middle; he is good natured, too good-natured for his Own good sometimes. In fact, lje is exactly the type of guy Bully's like: he most always says "yes" and flitters their puny personalities.' 1 CroW Alet lie tell you ^has a lot of crosses; Crow is growing bald at A rapid speed. He has seven children and don't blame him he also has a-wife. All these circumstances make the abing most of the time a little rough for him!. He has above-all a peculiar fear for bis wife. She is a small; woman, drinks like a, fish and has a dirty tongue. The neighbours aften say: "Oi you, Buddy*' She Ihiddy, I tellin'' you: I 'airi 'fraida her, but she tongue, Lawd. Don't let tier put that tongue pon you at all, at all. You tellin' I, oe chile, you tellin' I, ai you, Buddy!" And of course, there was always more that was added to it. Well as for Crow, the neighbours have it: "He he can't help, poh fella he done eat coo coo soup. Y'aint see he what you think he bald fon you tink 'tis study, he study so much: tjoopi" They suck their teeth "Botheration, yes 'tis something always bothering him."

They aint iptercedin' into the important things in they community. Nawi Man, don't hurt you head over them do what you think is right." • A smile creased around Crows lips then it spread out on his fe.ce as he thought of these reassuring words. le had heard Chinchiri a moment ago. But his mind had wandered off to last night's experience. "If fright does paralyze you," he said: "it does make you take off like a kite, too. Last night I was passing, by Seager's Gut going to town.
