Treasure Pods

The sun has been kidnapped
and tied beneath a woman’s wrapper.
So do not wonder when
you see men trying to peep;
for all that they seek is light
for their darkened souls.
Like nicotine stains on the palms and soles,
the heart of men is patched
with darkness here and there
and sometimes everywhere.

Whenever a man chases a woman
and a boy, a girl;
open the heavily padlocked cages
Of your heart and set the panic free.
He has only realised where
to find light.
For since the inception of time,
light is the only treasure men seek,
And women are the pods
in which the light is hidden.
