Kwame Pocho’s 1000 words is synonymous to elite photography. It turns out his fingers can work more than a camera. Today, by popular request, I reproduce this peice of literary delight he wrote some time ago. I think it’s brilliant, but dont take my word for it. Find out yourself. Kwame, tell ‘em;
This poem was how I summed up a conversation I had with my beloved. She actually tried to define why girls generally like bad boys. She said it was kinda like the way girls love heels; knowing very well “you can’t walk too far with heels” but you wear them anyway cos you know they make you look elegant, or at least make you feel elevated (both literary and figuratively speaking). That conversation was so intriguing I just had to put it together, and I made a poem out of it, just for the fun of it.
Good Good Boys, Bad Bad Boys, a Girl & Her Shoes
So she tell to me,
lemme tell to you why girls love them bad bad boys,
and don’t look at them good good boys;
She tell to me, think of boys as shoes:
Good good boys them like flat shoes;
them go take you far, comfortably.
Them are safe and dependable any day, any weather, 4eva!
