we A Poem About Rape ~ Naija Poets

When all that should be hidden isn't,
Reminds that rape is fashion designed.
When acts on TV channels arouse,
Is a prove that rape is media promoted.

Now that rape becomes an addiction
What alternative is it to rape urge?
Now that rape is alcoholic in nature
Yet nowhere to find a rape rehab?

Rape here rape there and everywhere
Allegations are polluting the living air.
The word rape seems manipulated,
Molestation is sure the better word.

Exploitation is an evil breed;
An aged digging holes of kids
Is verily truly a rape crime_
Life imprisonment jail time

If the evil  actor is a stranger,
It is worthy of the word rape.
If there's multiple versus singular,
It is worthy of the word rape.

If the prey was preyed unconscious,
It is worthy of the word rape.
If it involved weapon or choking of voice,
It is worthy of the word rape.

Rape can sometimes be hard to define
Since culture and norms are not equal.
Rape can sometimes be misspelled
In a game of do-me-i-do-you stuff.

Most girls from green-white-green
Will say, "if I easily let you pull it off
It'll seem I'm cheaper than a pin."
Most girls from peace-and-unity

Will say, "Guy, you'll have to rip it off_
If truly you want to eat my sardines."
Oh, Jesus Christ of Nazareth
Can we categorize that as raping?
