the answer

the answer by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

the answer

don’t live your life she sternly said
until we can be together
you tell me you are on the road
don’t lie I know you better

her face is red her skin is blotched
her temperature is rising
frustration oozes from her pores
I find it unsurprising

women clamber on my wagon
thinking it’s the place to be
they hope that I’ll bring love and joy
free them from misery

I always try to do my best
I help whenever I can
but I can never be the answer
after all I’m just a man
