I learned today is world poetry day, yeeiiiii!!!! Something for us at last.
Anyway, I’ve noticed that ‘Woman’ rhymes with ‘Poetry’, eh maybe not literally but you get what I mean. Women are a big part of (my) poetry, as they’re one of the wonders of the world.
So here’s to my darling poetry, and to the best muse you could ever find; Women… May we never stop making magic with our words and stories.
Here’s a poem I wrote a while ago (yes, inspired by a woman)
I went out early this morning for a walk, to speak with my Lord, but what I saw next was crazy and down right absurd
I saw a girl in bum shorts and long transparent tights, I tried so hard to look up, I tried with all my might
I guess she was going to buy something, my guess is something spicy, so for the sake of this tale I’ll like to call her Maggi
Maggi swayed and swayed but most of all stayed, stayed on the screen of my eyes but more so my mind
Who sent this one my way, just when I came to pray
The better man in me told me to turn, but the ‘wise one’ decided to face his problems and rather not run
I tried to think of Angel Gabriel and all things pure, But it was only the thought of Maggi that was sure to endure
Maggi had been ‘sent’ to disturb my mind and quiet time, so I ‘jejely’ went back home, to avert a potential crime.
So today I learnt my lesson a lesson so dear, that the best way to go when fighting temptations is to steer absolutely clear…
So here’s to MAGGI, the girl who won’t let me be…
Here’s to everyone who seek a certain rhythm in their lives & relationships
Here’s to every muse, every beauty and every reason to write…
HAPPY WORLD POETRY DAY!!!
