' You Laughed And Laughed And Laughed - Poem by Efe Benjamin

I told you I was in love,
But you laughed and
Laughed and laughed.
.
I gave you my love,
But you did not give me yours,
Instead, you kept mine, and
Gave yours to another.
.
You laughed at my song,
You laughed at my walk,
Then I danced my magic dance
to the rhythm of the talking
drums pleading.
.
But you shut your eyes, and laughed
And laughed and laughed.

    You laughed at my song,
    You laughed at my walk,
    Then I danced my magic dance
    to the rhythm of the talking
    drums pleading.
