»Shingwaya Shintoshi«

by Fay Mbiwa ThePoet, November 20, 2017

Shingwaya Shintoshi was
The most scary man I have ever seen
Leave that for another day.
Shingwaya Shintoshi won a lottery
He drowned himself
He was afraid of his wife
He was afraid his wife
Would start loving him
Because of the lottery
