Like I Like What I See - Poem by Amos Motlanthe

a stain on my new shirt
rubbing it’s nose
like a crook woman
saying no when I say shit
feeling sorry for as if you care
calling me names
like my four cousins

get off my back
it’s a pity I am living town
I do not like being talked about
I only like bananas like monkeys
but you do not have friends
scratch my back I will yours

they call me the morning midst
not that morning of Mbuyiseni Oswald Mtshali
the every day early bird
I take my time while I am in the bath
watching myself in the mirror
like I like what I see

you always look at me with desperate eyes
ayes like one of a legobu
if you get off my back
I wont spread a word

don’t give me that look
I am not saying goodbye
but still
go buy me a diamond
it’s a girls best friend

let me call you ntsi
ok you are annoying
you keep coming back
do I look tasty or
do I smell delicious

only ladies crave me
every girl I see looks at me
I guess cleanliness really comes next to Godliness
