Kindreds

I DON'T KNOW

By the village tree
Sat its simpatico kinsmen
Gathered under Solomon's shadow
Smoking pipe of tobacco leave
Telling tales of women
While waxing crafty willows
In their proclivity
To whine, laugh and grieve
As their wrinkle weighs tittle tears

***********
Mothers chinwags 
About their men prowess,
Bickering in breathe-like sound
As others cajole and buttress,
Some scalawag
Dressed in Judas gown
Posed like an actress
Took mouth to ears
Before two men - old good friends...
And they wrestled themselves to the ground

************
Their children plays peekaboo,
All lost in the glowing night,
Crickets chirping with silence
Dogs barking,
Women bickering,
Waxing men wrestling,
Kids playing,
The dark stage illumine
The lantern refereed -
Dimming in dramatic plight

**********
Red-capped chiefs
Staggered to the scene
The hubbub tot up glean
With all its facts,
Caused lovers to become strangers
And friends swore to be foes
Each tasting the sands
Pointing fingers 
Up high and the dusty moon
Cooed the stars in one accord

*************
Later in the night
Aggrieved men seeks a brother
Cuz they couldn't sleep under their covers
As amity is lighter while Hatred weighs lead, 
Fielding mothers
Longs for the warmth of peace
As carefree Children
Snores under their sheets
And before the co ck crows,
Pride were sheathed by fathers
With all agreeing
That they all live for others
