Friend in Pen

oh my fren, that man 

with the pen

can never be kept in any pen

spirit soars above any tent

rising to the stars unbent

catching rays of 

joy without dent

to bring to the men kept in den

sharing and caring 

like real men

 

Solimaa

You may be cut yet behave uncut

You rant in town, 

charged with pot

Abusing women in 

word and deed

Because you lost 

the culture seed

 

That once was planted 

in every boy

Before the dawn of 

the western ploy

When boys were raised 

like useful plants

In nurseries behind 

wooded plants

 

So they rise with 

manhood knowledge

That taught them 

the social pledge

To be hard and firm, 

to roar fierce

Attacking evil with 

manly spears

Spreading love with 

dignity manly

Reserving the spear 

for attacks timely.
