Silk sly

a poem by EPHRAIM INYANG, Nigeria

Silk sly,
swifter than a fox
tongue of a ready writer,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
enchanter of words
painter of the future,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
charming like a kitten
always wearing a smile,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
seems like a perfect match
serving your response right,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
throwing diamonds of promises
spraying fragrance of feelings,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
says "you are everything"
and he's breathless without you,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
Spinsters perfect match
wife's comparison,
all but a lie.

Silk sly,
about to tell a lie
trust him no more,
we've learnt to live with him so.
