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.

Annie, your poem is what it is! Sorry 2 say you took the pie out the refrigerator with this one. CONGRATULATIONS with your 3rd place win;-) Thank you for participating in my worst poem contest.

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
