I Now See

I Now See
The smoke gets in your eyes
as its early morning
waiting for tea
as wifey sleeps
Moms not awake
They forbid you to tea make

So with your hands you shake
as puffs you blow

I see in the distant
the sea tides upturn
Your inner chest does smoke burn
perhaps cigarettes are a gift
God given
when coffee can be served in lieu
but bitter truth can be mistaken
heaven sent this poets salaams
as urchins close in
Begging alms


exciting perhaps
than the smoke in his eyes
hope the intended one
doesn't cry
or else he'd eat me up
fry or no fry.

me penis
is a black belt in karate...........
a bloody good chopper!
