Stood On Its Head - Poem by Alem Hailu Gabre Kristos

She made me a cuckold
With my best friend
'Go ahead
No problem! '
I said
And made love
With her close friend!

When life stood
On its head
'How dare you two! '
She said,
And in vain
Tried to trap me in bed
Planting a kiss on my forehead
Darling the winner of
My bread.

'I am afraid
I have tasted the meaning of
Life to the full!
So don't be a fool
Be cool
And taste him
To the full' I said.
