    My Afro spread a dozen
    Natural and yet NOT inherited by my cuzin
    Hair this long and sweet only comes a dime a dozen
    And right now I'm happy that it's graces my husband
    I'm happy that it lays low but grows around something that doesn't
    Something that can rise whenever it sees me comin'
    Because that's MY afro

    No this afro doesn't grace this marvelous body
    In fact not a string comes from me
    It's one of a marvelous man that thinks I'm lovely
    You see, I call it mine because me
    And ONLY me
    Can pull the strans of this afro and make it go to the side slowly
    Reaching a core that can ONLY
    be inserted in me
    Silky strans that rubs against mine's naturally
    Building a bond that can only be beautifully
    And gently
    MY afro!!!!!!

    Gracing a head
    A head of a man in a rose petalled bed
    Grease on it's hairs with silky strans of red
    Knowing a cut of scissors could neva be made
    Because this bond my afro and me have made
    Could neva be refed
    To another human or that of the dead
    Because it's MY afro!!!!!!!

    Moans ans groans call into the air
    Yet a hair hasn't moved out of place not that this is rare
    Because I have taught my hairs to stay with it's pair
    This hair
    The hair of the afro graces that of a man slash bear
    Because he treats me roughly but do I care
    No, because I own that afro....down there
    Whether there
    or here
    It's still mine's no matter
    Because it knows where it's home is....... with my patch together
    Because it is MY afro


    No....no......I shall not take a no
    When I want to braid and pull at this afro
    Because heck where I go it goes
    And it already knows
    There are no no's
    Because when I holler at it......it does not grow
    Instead it stranks until it's no longer an afro at all
    Not even MY afro!!!!!!!


    Well, let's take that back...it's still my afro!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If this means...what I think it means, this is a slyly crafted, creatively devilish piece.
