Poetry by Jeff Green


The female of some species

She flies within his heart and soul
And gives his spirit perfect form
Yet he will never give his whole
To keep her warm

He takes her passion for his own
Too little love he has to give
And with the seed that he has sown
She cannot live

When he is firm within her mind
Their bodies one and flown away
She makes a blow for womankind
And ends the play

She carries him to find a reed
Takes back all she had to give
She eats her man to fill her need
For young to live!
