NATURAL MILK SHAKES

Blessed are they who host nature’s milk
For theirs is the kingdom of cuddling
The creator has created many things
But I bet the two mounds
Down the neck of the petty lands
Which stand like strong soldiers at attention
In their young years after riping
And bend gradually to be in sync with time
Until they lose all shame
And lie like flat tuo zaafis on the land of the chest
Are among his best yet
So why do they get imprisoned like hardened criminals?

II
What crimes could those pairs
With no bones and teeth
Commit to be put behind bars?
What crimes could those twos commit
To be handcuffed and paraded
Through shameful vehicles
To tarnish their reputations?
What crimes force them to peep
When they wish to be let loose like flying birds to explore?
God-brewed milk in arresting silk!

III
Forgive them today and the end of everyday
And let them loose
If for nothing
They have fed much
Been pulled and wobbled like kneaded clay
Needed for a pot mould
Or in wait to be
Been bitten, shaken and crushed like pepper between ‘apotoyowa and tapoli’
And have been flipped up and down like fried eggs by a skilled flat ladle on hellish fires
Let them loose
Let them loose

V
Let them loose and feel the jubilation for once
Children hopping in hope of catching
Men excited on sight seeing  spree
Hosts, free to breathe
Let them loose
Let them loose
Please let them loose
Even hardened prisoners rest from work
