Gone Almost Forgotten

Sometimes when my mind's lazy I think of you
The times that happen are getting quite few

Wreaked havoc on my heart 
What the storm did in its path

Sadistically rape my love
Then offered a black dove

Forged a degree to get by
A degree you have to lie

How does knowledge make gold
When there's a hole in the shoe sole

Shame on you big professor
You play my money and me a sucker

Me the poor illiterate woman
Fed clothes and shelter the educated man

    A woman taken advantage of, but not truly due to the lack of education. The heart can make us all foolish at times. Loved the write. Thank you for the warm sentiments on my poem "Why Did You Hate Me Mother"
