The Green Man

Written by: Nsamu Moonga

The Green Man

Blue cap
Green shirt
Kaki trousers
And black shoes
Underneath
I don’t know
Could be green
His fave

He hefts the cap
He smile exposing
The milky teeth
The snowish teeth and 
The coalish gums show
The classicla dilemma of
White and black

Grasps the English-colour pants
Glares and
On my hickory table
He sees
Seductive butterfly
Birdwing butterfly
Prominently green
The colour seduces him more
The green man!

“Good afternoon,” he says
“I mean the butterfly!”
Green man lives
And loves
Wants to fly
Like butterfly
Free!
