We Should Stay Well And Our Neighbors Also - Poem by Bonnetvanture T Asiimwe

My friend, you gladden, elegantly stroll
On streets in Sylvia Awori’s sleek silk.
Your brothers poke along ‘pocketing’
Not in a pose but pious pain.
You proudly prance, dribble and wobble your
God-given curves as they trot in trial
Like men walking on the heels of death!
But we should stay well and our neighbors also.

Your smooth American borrowed accent soothes,
Mesmerizes and hypnotizes-just the way you want it!
My dear, watch your smile; a steady one keeps you saturated
But a salacious one will open your thighs
For it digs deep in men’s hearts and its pain you pay.
You may be ripe like a maroon berry
But you belong to some one
You are not a sex kitten!
We should stay well and our neighbors also.

You can tame, expose what you have for their eyes
To devour but hey
Young men’s love lies in their eyes, faith in their hands
The result will be a tiring tale to tell.
We should stay well and our neighbors also.

Hullo my brother,
Look at those things but don’t wait for long to see them.
You just sit contentedly on your fire stone in your kingdom.
Stop craning your neck
Else you will pay price with pangs of remorse.
I know it pains but we are not invited
For a feast on this planet!
We should stay well and our neighbors also.

My friend forgive me, I do not know what you like
But just remember that you once lavished and loved
And varnished in vain valors of love.
You mechanically assumed to have fallen in love
When you had really fallen by the banks of love
You listened to melodious murmurs of its waves
You lay obscure like a silhouette, uncertain of the world around
She strode like a toad
You were swiftly drifted into nostalgic memories
Of the past which you could not make present.
Wasn’t that enough to open your eyes?
We should stay well and our neighbors also.

My brethren, let me not delve deep in the glories gone long
I don’t want to smack on the barren woman’s butt
Nor annihilate the youthful frenzy with my Cro-Magnon man like ways.
Don’t gnash your teeth at my sight,
We just differ in vision and language-
A best twist dancer may have his bones crack
If he tries calypso, we just think differently-
A secret in our lives-BUT
We should stay well and our neighbors also.
