Divorce by Mirror S’buko

Mirror S'buko | January 24th, 2017 | a poem a day challenge, poetry | No Comments


I divorce you for foolishly
Bringing my name into disrepute
And tarnishing my brand name image

I divorce you for repeatedly
Raping my reasoning
And looting my bank account

I divorce you for stupidly
Remaining my endless liability
And depreciating my worth

I divorce you for constantly
Bankrupting my up-stairs
And hacking my ethical morals

I divorce you for selfishly
Incapacitating my reasoning
And disorganising my priorities

I divorce you for endlessly
Blinding my eye sight
And corrupting my mind

I divorce you for corruptly
Stealing my conscience
And mismanaging my mind

I divorce you for criminally
Crooking my brain capacity
And dismantling my humanity

I divorce you for temporally
Painting my white eyes red
And vandalising my looks

I divorce you ignorantly
Rubbishing my good dignity
And slandering my brand name

I divorce you for completely
Destabilising my body joints
And my ability to walk upright

I divorce you for cruelly
Killing me, I and sense of self
And polluting my manhood pride
