»The Bull-Dozer«

by Fay Mbiwa ThePoet, May 15, 2015

East and west,
It knocks all the air around,
South-North,
It knocks all the space around,
Oh dear stop.

Stop dozing,
Sh!Sh!the teacher is coming,
Wake up,you will be found,
Bum!The locker thumps,
Books being searched,
Oh dear student,
Where did the pen go?

Maths or English?
Which will suit?
Maths, no pen,
English, no book,
Take this,
No that's illegal

Upside down the book is being read,
A sigh,
The teacher is out,
Slapping of breasts,
With sheer victory,
The teacher is fooled,
But the student,
Is a greatest fool.

»You Taught Me«

You took my hand / And whispered to me gently / "You are mine, today I have begotten thee." / You promised me all / And taught me to steal not / You are good to me; a worthless piece of clay. / / You told me I shall not want / Because You have a Shepherd been / You lifted my chin / And taught me to look up  sign in to read more »
