A SUCCULENT MANGO LIKE ME

image

Like a succulent mango
You bite me deep
After washing me in cool waters
And chew my flesh
Claiming I am fresh
I can only scream by sewing my threads
In your teeth
But you wait after chewing
And curse me
While you enjoyed me with no blessing
I know my juice tasted like heaven
And my body tasted like manna
Oh! My clothes tasted like honey
But you made sure to shave me bald
Who fights an armless beauty like me?
Only the brute but you say I will spoil?
If your flesh lives, sickens and dies
Why must mine be chewed in pain?
Never remorseful you always have to strain
To rid my thread off your rebellious teeth
If you are brave next time try the sours
