Rookie (1990/07/20 / BOTSWANA MOCHUDI)


As north is far to the south I professed my love
Always with a wide open mouth I stressed my love
A true poet's path of wit I discovered and followed
Meticulously as his writing to his dame I borrowed
Just to lay it down in paper, stone and tablets
For this adorned wonder and glory filled eyes brighter than a scarlet
She a beauty deserving not at all to be loveless
The exposure to cruelty in this world I felt I have to harness
And defend a she for she is the only piece of artistry
The world has ever had and can't stand to lose
A woman infallible when love is mentioned she does her service which is lucrative
And even if man say this is still tentative
I call for ears full of spontaneity, originality to be attentive
For stereotypes will invade truths that are of outstanding significance
And Distort reality and we all scream perhaps
The point is a woman is the epitome of beauty
And let this piece stress emphasis thus its duty
ladies you creatures of fairness
Engulf your brilliance brought to light by my handwriting
And this poem is eligible for biting
Use it when need arise and remember your splendour
