Analysis of A Taboo

Some charm, that isn’t so bad
And shows you as a lover
Involves not only head, -
It’s also something lower.

Taboo’s the sweetest wealth
Which swings with own grace.
That’s why without pants
You show your real face!

Yet, if your gift was checked
And tickling feels it awesome
Don’t grab the woman’s neck, -
Cause peace prefers the bosom!

Plus play with a faultless ruler
Means fun - statistics matter.
Love is the only ruler
In which size really matters!

And something “not a fork”
Inside of woman’s mouth
May turn a lazy jerk
Into a gorgeous spouse!

About this poem

The gift to be a human Two things are often pretty rude For cultural embrace, - It’s common truth and common nude In the improper place. Love is a gorgeous fire When etiquette is over! If intellect is higher, - The kisses are the lower! And you may fool the crowdedness But not the close friend, - When lady keeps the man’s proudness - Its future is in her hand. Relationship has wealth Which is priceless by itself When a girl provides a space For you to be yourself. Yet, the gift to be a human Means pretty broad kind. That’s why we kiss the woman From the facade and the behind!

Leonid Rozumenko

Someone in your domain asks me to send a letter about myself. My pleasure - favorite topic. Who am I? Can’t keep a secret - athletic, open-minded, and generous, with a wide scope, love for women, good company. With love for science and to write something everlasting, which isn’t computer programming anymore. I was born in gorgeous Kyiv (Ukraine) more than 35 years ago, lived in the USA for longer than 4 years and my language is still in progress. My poetry is also a colorful picture of the unseeing battle between “yours truly” and English grammar. My Ukrainian or Russian accent has two unreliable reasons – it’s “for fun” and “hard to get rid of”. The meaning of my last name “Rozumenko” in Ukrainian is very close to “jaba-jaba a dada” in “Crocodile Dundee II”. I have several other weaknesses but I introduce them only to my closest friends. Yours truly, Leo Rozumenko more…
