All about my Island home
"My Idyllic Island Home" by Sylvia Page
Far and wide I did roam
Away from my island home
In search of greener pastures
Than my island shores
Nowhere did I find beauty and clime
That matched my beautiful home sublime
Why oh why are people so blind?
Feel so discontented and need to wander
Away from this salubrious indolent land
Where there are still places
Untouched, but nature
Pristine beaches
And a surfer’s exhilaration
Boasting the highest density of leopard population
Wildlife and bird parks even virgin forestation
Resplendent in all its glory
A rich cultural history
Of an ancient civilization
And a spice haven
Fought over by many for colonization
And its strategic location
Foreign exploitation
Continues unheeded
Politically tainted
Towards filling the coffers
Of the corrupt powers
This is my idyllic Island abode
That’s worth much more

Than the finest gemstones
She is famously known


Pays one point and 2 member cents.
