O' Venus

O Venus: June 5,  2012
by Azly Rahman


Venus will come to New York city today ... they say
In early June it will be marooned
like a moon
in early June
Ahhh .. men are form Mars if you may
Women are from Venus ... and men can't argue with that ..
... not any day
whichever way
O' Venus
how could you be a planet and a flytrap all at once
romantic and robberistic in one I believe you are not
O' Venus
I remember you as a 2-B pencil when I was a child
to sharpened till you become short and with you the old telephone I dial
O Venus beautiful a planet you are
not like that ugly Pluto downgraded to a loon of a moon for looking at the sun when it was full moon
O Venus you are not paradise are you?
where good souls get sent to live a life of wine and dine
Mars will always be in love with you Venus
from far a trillion zillion gazillion miles he will love you for what you are
in Earth time that's not quite far
an email or a coin-operated phone away that's where you are
Venus o' Venus
I will look at the New York city sun
beyond the moon over Manhattan
in all the flytraps in my garden
in all my 2-B pencils
in all my phone messages
in all my gazillion emails
O' Venus
a paradise you are
a Mars chocolate bar
but don't hide behind the sun
and have you good clean fun
while men from Mars cry like orang utan
