    My Sweet Tswana
    May I bow in your presence
    And in humble submission
    May I kneel on bended knees before you
    And pledge my loyalty to you
    May I eat Tswana's fruit
    Of allegiance
    Carefully
    Peeling back its skin
    As I nibble and suck
    Tasting its sweet juices
    May I kiss Tswana's
    pearl of obedience
    My tongue dancing over it
    Around it
    As I feel the shiver of approval
    I continue to go forth
    Deeper into your core
    Thereby
    Touching the walls
    Of repentance
    Sorrowing for how I ignored you in the past
    Pledging never to do it again
    Over and over again
    I repent
    Repent
    Repent
    Repent
    Until
    I receive your forgiveness
    Through the cleansing washing of your essence
    As it flows over me…..

    As always, Bishop, that was great!

    "Deeper into your core
    Thereby
    Touching the walls
    Of repentance
    Sorrowing for how I ignored you in the past
    Pledging never to do it again
    Over and over again
    I repent
    Repent
    Repent
    Repent
    Until
    I receive your forgiveness
    Through the cleansing washing of your essence
    As it flows over me….."


    Loved those lines especially. Go boy!

    Wow...


    My brother...you do have a way with words...I am overwhelmingly inclinded to say...

    I read this and I was smitten, taken and felt as though I had been baptized
    in a new form of passion as I finished...

    Indeed...as your last line speaks..."it flowed over me"

    Wonderful Dedication...knowing this Queen as I do
    I can see how a flow of such caliber would sweep me
    off my poetic feet...

    May the light shine from the lighthouse
    and lead us all to shore...
    Sage
