Daughters Of Eve - Poem by Vincent Somto
Here comes the stop sign
Obeyed by men who love their life
And ignored by those who secretly crave for destruction.
She comes with smiles and treats
And takes the in watchful knights off guard
I do not discriminate
But reveals the harm lurking within the skirt of mischievous creatures.
Oh young man understandeth what thou heareth?
Or percieveth what thou seeth?
For the witch comes with the red juicy apple
Eat not and you will live
Fall not for the two ripe oranges dangling at your front
Neither think of the supple pomegranate dancing to the rhythm of destruction
Ask Joseph and he will explain better
For he knows a great deal of what I am saying
Take not her gift and eat not of her craft and devices
Go not nigh her house
For in there many great men have fallen and still thousands lay wait
She will always roll those eyes and dangle those pomegranate
But he that falleth not in the days of adversity
The same hath great strength
My young lads remember
Eyes are windows of the soul
And God is just and perfect
For he gave us the ability to shut them within seconds
And alas he says thou art inexcusable oh man
They are as poisonous as the venom of the viper
And are deadly like the jellyfish who sucks up its prey with just a sting of its tentacles
Inquire of Delilah and she will make you understand for she is not a novice
Flee or you will fry
Turn or you will burn
Run or you will rust
For my dear friend Nnamdi Azikiwe would always say ' when the penis of a man stands up he loses control of the mind'
