My Beautiful Nieces - Poem by Rose Kanana

Cover your cleavage my nieces
For the fruits are not ripe for harvest
The world has changed-they get aroused at sight
The pedophiles eyes water with lust.
the gold rush is for the young

Cover your cleavage my nieces
Community parenting is no more
We lost the moral fabric
And when fruits are harvested early
They leave a tinge of regret.


Cover your cleavage my nieces
The climate change is real
Our age, ‘pneumonia' was found in the dictionary
Your age- it is a household term
The doctors of today are commercial.

Topic(s) of this poem: advice, care, exploitation, lust, premarital-sex

    The poem has a social message for young girls. It also comments on the weakening of moral values in the society as compared to the earlier times. Thanks. (Report)Reply
