Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Augury


Religion demonized woman
Caused the snake to rattle and the earth to quake
With dawn of the letter to man
Nature never knew before such a fake!

It's simply a power game
To control power 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
Antiquity proudly displayed their looks
And sought out Delphi's priestess signals

Each time Adam is in a lecturing mood
Guilt and gridlock cloaked God's religion.
Just admire freely beauty of women hood
While testosterone fears speak in pidgin!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
