THE BRAMBLE

By

CHUKWUMA ANYANWU

I am not worth much at sight
But a little body with a little flesh
Yet come to me and know delight
And have relief from your stress.

If your interest is in money
Welcome, then to my financial times
Though my feelings may be phoney
There is unbridled liveness in my rhymes

I am a walking book,
My worth lies not with my face value
I am a fisherman’s tiny hook
Cast me and your reward is un-due!

I am a deep dull sea
Stir me and I come fully alive
You will then value your morning pee
Top in the agenda of the day’s strive!

My face scares not my friends
As my manner is an orator
It hardly suits anybody’s ends
Because it serves me worse as a protector!

Study me, I am school
Experiment on me, I am worth a test
Know then the good in a fool
And regret vocally your past.

Come with your offending weapons
For this tiny body harbours such thick skin
As not even the local Botha with his inhuman ribbons
Can make a trifle thin!

I am as lengthy as a beginner’s prose
Sharp and cutting as a cynic’s word
Set and poised to poison your polished repose
And ever ready to lend you a suicide’s cord

Do you doubt me? Dare attempt!
A trial will confuse you
For those stored up self contempt
Will be freed to join your Character’s queue

I am really not worth much at sight
Be taught then to give me a thought
Because this little body will fill you with fright
By revealing your secreted lot

Study me, I am school
Experiment on me and discover your past
For I am the intelligent fool
Whose character study will quench your envious thirst!

Please, I am not for sale
Because I am a billionaire’s scorn
There is about me this little tale
Which brings me scorn and admiration as a thorn!

  1. I enjoyed this, so sweet for the rhymes are so perfectly taped with the rhythm.

    I only observe that some of the lines are too prosaic and can be recrafted for imagery,… Personification, simile, concrete metaphor, euphemism and hyperbole are the simple, common but greatest imagists’ instruments.

    I’m humbled… thanks

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let
