Cultivation # 52 Claine Keily

I am by cultivation unsoftened
as by a generous friend
who brought me to his
only to show off his money

Do not suppose
I prefer America to Africa
or that I still believe
in perseverance or labour
or that I have ever
believed in the marvellous

If the prize money I won
is used to purchase
of no importance
then know
I have escaped brutality


  1. Wow again! what a punch in the face! very efficient!

  2. Thanks Beatrice I have never thought of my poems as punches, but I guess that is the ultimate aim of my pieces. Thanks for the feedback once again.
