Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Augury


Religion demonized women
Caused the snake rattle to quake
With dawn of the letter to men
Nature never knew a fake!

It’s simply a power game
To control strings of the purse
Greed enticed by fame
Fortune eyes a man’s curse

Before man crafted leather Books
Eve and snake were life-giving symbols
Proudly etched the marble blogs looks
History’s testimony forgotten gimbals

Each time displeasure lectured mood
Guilt gridlock cloaked in dead end religion.
Just admire freely beauty of women hood
While testosterone envy speaks in pidgin!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
