Perilous ones

Fractured bones are never the same
Broken souls are for ever lame
Fire burns and so does ice.
Wary of the shoulder you lean on,
Stars fade
Caves cave
Even the earth shakes! And Its never nice
Survival is a cardinal rule
Shouldn’t hardships be a school of thought?
Does the size of a straw matter
To a sea man in peril?

NYOTO(THE NIPPLE)

on the cold concrete floor
she lay
frail like a twig
her pale eyes spoke softly
while the mouth saw nothing at all
fleas were sucking her dry
as fat green flies buzzed around.
something thick and slimy
oozed from the olfactory depot
lord!
she moved
then kicked
and kicked hard
clenched her jaws
gripping the floor.
in slow motion
she ceased!
a rivulet of tears was already drying
as stiffness settled,
her infant woke
waiting to suckle!…

FADE

For the sake of beauty
She preferred white
Though from head,booty to toe,
Lady was as dark and sooty
Like a moonless night
Or a blind mans sight.
So a teller got cashed
To tailor make her light.
Complexion overhaul
The soot got scrubbed,
With a cream she rubbed
To brighten her dermis.
Spades are forever spades
The color shift never went amiss
But now explain this…
Brown face dark ears
Dark knuckles brown fingers
Brown thighs dark butts.
A creepy one, right?
101 Dalmatians must have been her inspiration!

AKUPHI? ( WHERE IS HE)

belly full
he left the inn
disposed a couple used rubbers.
several generations wasted.
the gas station still open,
filled
cashed
then texted home,
“the conference dear
is extended
till next week i hear”
drove to the strippers
promoted the country’s barley
puffed countless sticks
and left with two slays
after tipping the waiter heavily
but on his last turn to parking,
missed the brakes and accelerated
he hit a lorry at 120
paramedics missed his pulse
he wont be epitaphed!
