Why do leeches cry?



© 2014 Roland Ediare 032414256-12-5-1-3-8-5-19

Leeches cry
when the host is dry
maybe he is broke
leaches don't care.
Cancer in your blood
like a known word
most familiar to you
a friend in disguise.

Leeches on a birch
it's medicine is drained
cursed from birth
a choice-less dare.
Medicine for your cancer
Poison for your life
wolves in sheep clothing
that's your family tree.

Leeches, please don't cry
this host is far gone
death by your hands
many years ago.
Rejected to deject
silly common sense
you thought he was dead
Who's the birch now.

Roland 'KingShip' Ediare Claim this poet

I'm a man sold-out to The God of JesusChrist...I preach Him in & out of Season...-I I love life, laughter and being myself...I'm "BRASH"; usually not a 'respecter of persons'...I practically speak things as they are with a pragmatic intent. ...And I'm usually Very PASSIONATE about whatever I speak or do...lol ...Regarding my poetry: I usually put on a character and a subject that I'm passionate about...It brings me close to deliver my passion as the real characters would feel...As close as I can get if the 'subject' was me....someday 'Beyond the Sky' will be my reach. "Deo Volente!...Please Enjoy my poems, most of them are quite deep; so when you read try to get outside 'The Box'; because ...I write from outside the box...And Remain Blessed. Then before you rate Google the meaning of unknown word, you do not know it all...How do you fault what you do not understand...the burden of understanding is never on the giver of information, but on the recipient...Anyway thanks. more…
