Hey You! That Tattoo - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Hey you! That tattoo
Tells a stunning story!
Hey you! That tattoo
Is a work of astonishing art!
Oh! What a glory!

The pain you endured from those pins
As the ink spreads out prettily on your skin
That tattoo is your choice
I hear you with your voice

Hey you! That tattoo
Tells me you have spent so much time
Hey you! That tattoo
Your chest, your back and body all rhyme
Oh! Your physique is worth the dime

And your skin is marked
With endless remarks
While your body is on display
With your signed tattoo of the day

And with that tattoo you stand unpretentious
And with that tattoo you speak softly conscious
And your bodywork's pile like treasures
While people watch with jealous as the observe the precious
