Love of a palm wine tapper

A palm wine tapper
Goes an extra mile
Climbing; risking it all
For the love and joy.

He understands pain
And makes the most
From cuts flowers
Of a palm tree…

He doesn’t hate
But improves tastes,
By fermenting
Giving sap a life.

Even when trees fall
He understand all
And extract tears
Into kegs of life…

He immortalizes
The names of trees
And kills fear
In souls that taste.

Dear, if you wish
To die for love
Don’t die in arms
Of a rich man…

Yes, he loves you
But soon as you ghost
Activities would,
Make him erase you.

Don’t die in hands
Of a poor man too
His mentality
Would drag you to mud.

But like a writer
A palm wine tapper
Would bring you to life
Like he does the fallen trees.

Native Fly: Palmwine Play

Palm Wine

Palm Wine

    Palm wine Play
  1. It was some time ago no pea-cocking or ego
  2. Innocent and untouched like virgin forest
  3. Then grasses covered bottles attuned for palm wine
  4. Flies also sipped, it was creamy and white as milk
  5. From daddy’s cup the little kids drank
  6. Inspiring, their play was full of fun
  7. Pretending to be drunk; if not already
  8. Staggering, damping the eyes
  9. Rolling out the eyeballs,
  10. Stooping and soliloquizing
  11. Playing with sands, throwing pillows and falling
  12. Along the long narrow corridor
  13. Running for more, to daddy’s refilling cup
  14. To drink the universe large and play all night long.
