When It's Dark. - Poem by Tsireledzo Masindi

What do you do when it's dark?
I go hide my vulnerable body cause am not iron man like Tony Stark.
Hide yourself when it's dark.
These days dogs bite as much as they bark.

Hide yourself when its dark.
Everyone see your body and wish to leave a nasty mark.
hide yourself when its dark
Thugs are waiting with sharp teeth like a shark.

Be warned, they'll play on your body like a public park.
Take my advice, escape danger and get in the ark.
To the frequent night walkers, stop it before you run out of luck.
Hey friend! , hide yourself when its dark.

Topic(s) of this poem: warning
