Rookie (Ugbawka)

Peak of Pleasure


Stronger than brandy
So unfathomable and intriguing
Turning a man to some candy
When it inundates his garden
And grips him like a stolid muscular cop
Nabbing a suspect from the rear

It washes away all vestiges of inhibition
And shuts down care of the world
And plants man on the track of obedience
As a bridled ploughing mule
So he can increase and multiply
To dominate his intractable milieu

But it gives him unfettered utterance
Like a notorious prattling drunk
Vending stale gossip
For just a free cup of palmwine
Causing him to chirp and sing merrily
Like a jubilant canary
That stumbles on a ripe berry
As he effortlessly ascends the cliff of pleasure
Paradise’s next door neighbour
Where bliss has a short reign
While worry and stress rare guests
Freeing him only when its super brew
Is served and consumed.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
