Cryptic Poetry - Poem by Jabulani Mzinyathi

there is a poet
embedded in every prophet

taste the caustic poetry
issuing from mounds of poverty

see the smooth poetry
spun like pottery
there on the potter's wheel

the prancing lines of potent poetry
the poet's intellectual property

Topic(s) of this poem: love and art

    The caustic poetry issuing from mounds of poverty provokes thought. Poet's intellectual property is poetry and this is beautiful. Brilliant poem is shared here.10 (Report)Reply
