Do You Know?

Poem By Deluke Muwanigwa

Uncle Tom meant

Do you know what torment is?

Torment is when uncle Tom decides to hate you
Torment is when uncle Tom meant to kill you

Do you know what torment is?

Torment is when uncle Tom tries to burn you
Torment is when uncle Tom meant to poison you

Do you know what torment is?

Torment is when uncle Tom becomes uncle Sam
Tom meant is when uncle Tom meant to be uncle Sam.

Do you know what torment is?

Torment is when uncle Sam meant to invade you
Torment is when is when uncle Tom becomes uncle Sam

Do you know what torment is?

Torment is when uncle Tom knew uncle Sam wants to destroy you
Tom meant uncle Sam is coming to dominate you

Do you know what torment is?

Torment is when uncle Sam does what he please
Torment is when uncle Sam spreads disease.

Do you know what torment is?
Do you know what?
Do you know?
Do you?

Comments about Do You Know?

A powerful and striking poem.
Torment became Tom meant... pretty innovative. Tom is cartoon dog chasing Jerry the little mouse.
Uncle Sam is Torment personified! :)

Dear Barbie Doll, i wanna say i love you in case i pass on. This disease is upredictable and could have me breathless anytime. It's been 38 years of bliss, from that stolen kiss when you were fifteen. We have gone uphill and downhill together. When you cried i cried. When you laughed i laughed. Now, in our fifties, i wanna say you are still Barbara, my Barbie Doll.
