Camels New Calf
The camel showed her new calf to a few
calf got scared and friends faces looked like glue
they weren't mad
they just declared 
the new calfs a spitting image of you!

ROOTS

They came seeking a future not their own
carrying naught but memories too soon to fade
into the substance of a union of hearts.
In leaving left the spitting image of themselves
to gather up their memories lest they fade.

Son
From the exact day your Daddy 
said we'd conceived You
Exactly nine months, to the day, 
we retrieved you

It is said You are so much like him
It's a wonder that I was even there

What is a "spitting image" do tell
Because I wouldn't want it 
in my mouth to begin with 

I thought Sons were supposed 
to look like their Daddy's
After all, they're born out of Love
Or did I miss something, somewhere
                   God Bless...

Spitting Image
Something really grossed me out
While walking down the street;
A stranger cleared his throat and spat,
Just inches from my feet.

I think it is illegal
To just cough up phlegm and spit.
In society, it’s something
We should really not permit.

There once were signs in subway cars
Announcing prohibitions:
Loud radios and spitting
Both had fines for inhibitions.

Some people, though, do what they want
No matter who’s around.
I guess I should be grateful
That that spit stayed on the ground.
