That evening
I saw that boy
Making a deep cut
Into the water melons
The father interrupted
Was he biting into you lost yam pie
Or were is teeth missing after the dip
Tone dropped into a quiet evening solemnity
The elderly man queried his assailants
Maybe he was suffering from jealousy
Probably green with envy
All he wanted was a bite of his own making

    Interesting tone but I must say that I am confused I’m not quite sure what this is about
