Strange Woman - Poem by Francis Kokutse

She was the bitch
that sat on the birch
used for the table for the rich
that was because she likes to be within reach
by all who knew what to do with a woman
who clad herself with riches reserved for a man.

So those who came to her knew what
they were going to her house to look at
but she was one of those who had no shame
because she had plied her trade everywhere and had no name
to protect among all the people she has lived
with, but there was one man who got livid
with her because her trade had become
despicable to all men who have used her to come
in their search for the pleasures of the groin
some stopped but others continued to go in.
