Modern Ugandan Woman

The old times gazed upon a modern Ugandan woman

A vile daughter of eve eschewed by reality

Funky and nubile, scantily dressed.

Clad in the finest print, embroidered with beautiful gems

adorned with lovely bracelets…

Unbound desire, defective to the old times

As she shrugged lazily through the streets

In between matatus, monologuing with a costly mobile

The lines of disrespect written on her face now

filled with different shades of mascara and make up-

fleshy lips that nibble at a man’s bachelorhood

and her exposed breasts reeked of unfaithfulness

Her bottoms held up by the short print told a

story of shame and infidelity

She bore the assumption of an educated Ugandan

Prostitute with a mental phd at dawn-haaaah

She strutted through the corners of the street, this time…

Still in between matatus, and boda bodas…chewing gum, talking loud this time

as the public booed and boozed with carnal guts even a mad man

wouldn’t fathom…

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
