Someone Else’s Island: Deserting the desert


We’ve all been asked what five objects we’d take with us to a desert island. Now it’s your best friend’s (or close relative’s) turn to be stranded: what five objects would you send him/her off with?

The Daily Post.


He asked me to pack things he’d need

For a place on ‘Survivor’.

I asked him to think a while,

He’d figure it out himself.

That the why of the trip 

Was more important than the how.

Was it worth turning savage?

Was it worth a pillage?

Wouldn’t it simply be better 

To embark, instead, on a pilgrimage?
