Her Body Is On Fire

Please kiss and run
 Her body is on fire
The water is rising
Whisky on the table,
Golden in the glass
Burn to the taste,
A little happiness at last
No Money to burnt, yet time to pass

So turn away or duck and run
                              My only son
 Take your misty mistletoe kiss
 Disconnect the extinguisher: this girl is on fire!
..... A battle beyond despairs for the ghetto woman
A part of labor, and a part pain;
The ghetto woman lost all sense of pride 
A breed of women with no shame!
A part of labor and a part of pain
Ghettooooo woman...


 1 Peter 5:8
Be sober-minded; be watchful. 
Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion,
 seeking someone to devour.

    Great poem containing a great lesson from the greatest source. I believe we all write with a better pen when our source is sound...... Jake

    When there is nothing else [they can not take your body from you aye?] the are the joys of the flesh, it is totally understandable, but I guess you do burn yourself up this way :( Light & Love

    I like the ending. We have to be careful, because the devil presents it in fun way. Ghetto is the mind state! Good Write!
