GOSSIPS

Lindokuhle Langa 1995 (gauteng)



I saw them contradicting their lips,
and oops!
no good speech among their languages shall preach,
take no sip filling an empty glass to sheep enveloping people with misery that swipes watery daughters... yet oops with loose views,
no gentle man misses to kiss.
remembering songs that you shouldn't listen enhancing whispers,
influencers,
attention seekers... ladies of default being
await by a kiss nothing to gossip.
poof I made it disappear,
for my woman I'd be a thing to share somehow a drop that will make them stare.
Own a sip don't go and sip,
I'll be here anyways without,
GOSSIPS.
