A Promise Poem by Ali Eckermann

A Promise

Rating: 3.2

She gives him a cloud of parrots
He expects her to peel the carrots
She gives him a safari cruise
He expects her to hide the bruise
She gives him a blue magic rabbit
He expects her to feed his habit.

He gives her a kicking horse
She expects his true remorse
He gives her a rotting plum
She expects a little freedom
He gives her his silver spoon
She expects she’ll kill him soon.

Because if too much silence, then this amazing ironical poem full of cynical notes was born. So true. Man must not abuse his life partner, IF still so, then such things as in this poem can happen. Be alerted, man! This woman is smarter than you think., hey man! A most deserving Modern Poem Of The Day! CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as TMPOTD. Hurray for Ali! A 10 Full Score and myriad of 10´s more. God´s Blessings.

The rawness of the verse reflects the tough relationship it portrays.

Expectation and reception, sometimes in individual twin soul, stand as opposition political parties /// nice poem

Time to fly next time this poor specimen of a man raises a hand. Pack his bags in a garbage bag. Life is so much better than this! !
