M.R.S.E  Haba!
Your
long ladle stirs
poisonous
vegetables
in
large steamy pots.
 
Spiced
with…
salted
hatred,
soured
envy –
clamped
to bitter taste.
 
Cooked
bile – venom, you
shared
amongst siblings
to
truncate twine that
binds
their cords.
 
Parboiled
hatred grows
in
your hand. Your hearts –
dark
leopard patch…
your
smile sings gospel songs.
 
Your
eyes pelts with
fired
pebbles of despise;
child
of your undoing,
Beelzebub’s
drumsticks.
 
Please…
change
your cooking pot,
topple
the spiteful spices,
then,
cut your hands…
 
And
let love be our supper!

    Beseeching a hypocritical hater, breeding discord, to change his way and let love reign… Nice poetic admonition. Good work.
    (You likened the hater to a disease. Mr Bashir, please are you a biochemist? Lol)

  2. An arch hater indeed!… Loves the part that you painted the hater as a hypocritically being who acts to decieve…a typical mirror of mordern age human. God help his people.

    Good writeup. The organisation is new to me anyway.
