Word Play Wednesday: It Is Not A Balm by Biyai Garricks

Welcome to Word Play Wednesday!
Word Play Wednesday is a weekly feature of written and spoken word poetry. I will be sharing my written and spoken word poems in addition to poems by other wonderful Poets both past and present. If you are interested in sharing some of your poetry, feel free to buzz me and we can work something out.

I hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our thoughts, feelings and rants and in many ways relate to some of them.

This week I will be sharing a poem I recently wrote. This poem speaks to how most men think sex /penises solve every problem they have with their significant other without caring to know what women actually want. I really like this poem because it made me laugh and I hope you like it too.

It Is Not A Balm!

When she says she is lonely

And she needs to talk

Don’t give her a banana

It is not a balm!

When you forget her birthday

And she’s mad at you for this

Don’t give her a lollipop

It is not a balm!

When you betray her trust

And she thinks of calling it quits

Don’t offer her your gold finger

It is not a balm!

When you say you are sorry

And she says it’s okay

Don’t dance with your disco stick

It’s not a balm!

It is not a balm!

That one eyed snake dangling between two tree trunks

does not soothe aches

Or heal wounds

Although I must confess

Sometimes it may help a little

But if she says cuddle

Then cuddle her

And if she says talk

Then talk to her

Don’t pull out your firehose

When there are no flames to quench

It is not a balm!
