SPORTING FOR FIGHTS

Many pockets are dry
As the economy squeezes tight
Like a thirsty throat sqeezing a little orange
Valentine’s deed promises to squeeze
So minds of men plant seeds of quarrels
This is no time to fan a pore
As a hit will cause weeks of anger
This is no time to scare away mosquitoes
As a hit will cause weeks of fights
This is no time to tell a joke
Because the joke can fix the broke
When the laughter is birthed by fun
Anything can spark
The match of anger
Until Valentine’s Day walks by
Without so much as a glance
In your gift box of romance
As red turns into black
Things we do to skip the rope of giving
Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2016
