A Gentleman’s Promise
When the rains should decide
To come in cats and dogs, in deluge,
I shall be there with my brolly.
I shall cover you from its miaows and barks
And furl not til it ceases.
I shall sweep you off your feet
And carry you through mire and murky
To my home where I shall put you
On a throne of gold and purple velvet
Your feet cushioned in matching hassock
I shall bestow you with gifts and my service.
Where no man had thought to kiss you,
In that place, shall i, if you permit
I shall put in your tongue praise for me
And bring out sounds from you,
You didn’t fancy existed.
I shall take you to Papa and Mama
This is who I love, I shall say
To Pastor and church
And before God I shall say I do
We shall become one.
It shall be We against the world
We bearing offsprings
We building together a family
Time shall count away
And senility greet us
We shall have conquered the world
And decide to conquer hereafter next
We shall leave together.
But even as we leave
My promise shall be as potent
As when I first uttered it.
