She, notices how, the superstars wow whilst they writhe their bodies

the same rhythm they writhe to, she writhes to too.

to her, she knows it not, but her culture sheds its skin,

and the structure thats exposed left no covering for whats within.

She, notices how the superstars, bow to serve the beast,

slowly she too joins the feast and takes a bite out of her own.

the righteous are seldom born, right? righteousness is earned,

why would God mould mud and ribs, to moul them up to burn?

She wants him rich and hot, like a bougeoise beef curry.

empty to purpose, blind to reason, broke to love.

but thats how she was raised, and "mother taught her right."

she wants a hug, a snuggle, a kiss, yet, father taught us, "fight"

She was raised well and so was i,


she has to lose herself, and so do i.

For us,

Cosmopolitan Africa.
