Isthmus (27/30)


The prompt for day twenty-seven over at NaPoWriMo was to think of a common proverb or phrase then plug the first three words of said phrase into a search engine and use the first few page results as
inspiration for a piece. I chose the proverb No man is an island...


No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main ~ John Donne



No man is an island

but many attempt 

to become isles

mostly British Virgin, 

Cayman & Cook

crooks 
 
who swim 

in the waters of wealth

while the rest 

of the world drowns

in stock prices that stay down

caught in the undertow

of rigged 

annuities.



Maybe

one day

man will learn to be an isthmus

and fly like an eagle

into the future.
