It is poem of exposition of human nature


You called me honey,

And licked your lips while beckoning,

So I felt I was sweet.


I was besotted by the honey claim,

Unreservedly drenched the beehive cave,

Betook self to level of shell to snail.


You came panting over your homeless woodpecker,

I quickly offered my forest with trees for your borer,

Enmeshed in thinking of being the taste of your honey.


You then flattered me with ennoblement in island,

Homed in palace: where ordinariliness is by-passed,

I wholly uploaded into your yacht of deceit.


I prank and dreamt while you sailed,

When I woke you had dumped me amidst waves.
