Lord my Woman is Talking by Oluoch-Madiang’

Lord, my woman is talking
Give me four ears to hear her…

Lord my woman is talking and speaking
Give me six ears to listen to her…

Lord my woman is talking and speaking and saying things
Give me eight ears to understand her…

Give me more ears Lord.
She is saying this and that, that and this…
That I this and that she that.
Blah, blah, blah, my woman jabbers.

Lord she is saying that in 2004, January 4th, in the morning, at 9:30, I…
Lord, how does the morn of early 2004 matter today?
She is saying that I don’t listen, never give her ears…
Lord add me more ears I share with my woman!

Lord, my woman is speaking in tongues
About hair and love, pink and lollipop, black and forest, ooh and aah;

My woman, she says Tina is a bitch and Ali is a bitch and I bitch and…
Oh Lord, more ears please: my woman is bitching!

Lord lend me ten, twenty, thirty, hundred ears
(or cut off my woman’s tongues)
Quickly M’Lord, because my woman has just called to say…

We need to TALK!

    @ macharia…flog the poem, not the poet (blame the game, not the player). Madiang’ has no comment and has no woman! Lol! Glad you enjoyed. 🙂

    I was privileged to listen to this one out loud with all the vocal inflection required to deliver it’s impact. It’s as good written as when I heard it.
