POLE OR A MANHOLE?

images (1)

Mama said she had no eyes

She had no eyes so her mama was stolen

Her two eyes were not enough

So an invisible hole stole her mama whole

II

Mama told me she had no power

No power to get to the whole

Because the hole would have swallowed her whole

As it owned a mole which none can control

III

So I got a pair of eyes

And charged my power with food

I walked with mama two galloned decades

And turned to look during a noise

Only to turn, and see no one

My mama was gone

Swallowed by the hole whole

What will I say when my daughter asks me of her?

Like a wounded lion, I have four eyes

And still cannot see the hole

Whole swallowing whole

Are you a lightning pole?

Or a manhole?
