The Palm Wine


I like the palm wine
Because it makes me wine
With just a little of it
All my sorrows I forget it

It is gotten from a palm wine tree
A tree that resembles the oil palm tree
I wonder why its name should have a palm
Maybe because its from the family of palm

Drinking it makes on calm
As if one robs a balm
Always listening to others
Even to the younger brothers

You fool them by your calmness to be a good boy
Not knowing the palm wine is making you to coy
Always listening and not speaking
But all insults, you are remembering

Please do not take much of a sip
Because its can make you go unzip
Its not a poem that I am writing
But an experience that I am sharing

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
