Moola

Pz-avatarby Anuoluwa Boluwatife Stephen 19 Dec 2019

Come, oh come moola I plead,
Fill my twig with thy blead,
Thy presence makes rife,
Thy absence sucks life.

Pilliards crave thy bread
Nobles thy squabble they dread
Buffoons query thy worth
Sage revere thy broth.

My adversaries please bridle
My fellas please fondle
Come, oh come pervade my bosom
That my manes may blossom

And my barn mated
Then will I be sated.
