Three Beers

Three beers was all it took
To shake and shatter
My foundation shook
From the nuclear blaster
After wave shock
Out cold it has me knock’.

The first beer, cold and refreshing
Joy and happiness it did bring
Cold and crispy to the touch
Of euphoria I have never felt such
I relished the smoothness in my mouth
Then swallowed it and let it flow down south
In such a short amount of time
I had already finished it
Feeling sublime
I cherished it,
The alcohol high
Surely made me sigh.

Thus a segunda
Revealed personal propaganda
Aimed at my being
Blurring my seeming-
ly affected vision
Blinded me with precision
So I grasped the second bottle
Chugged it down full throttle
With not a care
Trying to ensnare
And duplicate
The intimate
High that was diminishing.
Very soon, it was in my grasp
But alas it turned out later to be an asp.

It stung me hard
Releasing its venom.
I reeled from the pain
Fighting hard to stay sane.
I wished I could burrow like a worm.
So number three
I ordered to be free.
The high was waning
Sobriety was now gaining
No matter how fast
I drunk,
Into reality I sunk,
And at last
I realised it was over.
There was no four leaf clover
To be found
On this parched ground.

SOCIALLY AWKWARD

Straight from another mare’s mouth..

Top Three Douchiest Things People Post On Social Media Part Two

The fact that people take precautions to defend selfies with passive aggressive hashtags in their captions shows that they instinctively know it’s douchey. Hence the aforementioned. This is the proof in the douchebag pudding. This is why the constant selfie taker is a douche… Someone gotta read this.. Not my words..

tonysbologna : Honest. Satirical. Observations.

As I type the keyboard shakes with growing intensity; the footsteps of the impending masses are truly felt before they are heard. Part two of Top Three Douchiest Things People Post On Social Media sheds light on the Jewel of the Social Media Nile; The Selfie. Shots fired.

Douchey Tendency Number Two: The Everyday Selfie Taker

Selfies are a lighting rod issue: they are simultaneously, all the while beautifully, loved and loathed by the masses. If you will they are Yin and Yang. We love selfies, love taking them, love captioning them, love critiquing them and most importantly love the ego stroke we receive when someone “likes” them. Everyone with a smartphone takes selfies and sometimes we actually need to. I’m aware life happens. You just bumped into Will Smith, I get it. Proudly take that selfie and upload that shit. I’ll “like” it, maybe even write a comment. Carpe…

Still Coloured!

Now this piece is one that as Deity, though distancing myself from social issues and ills of this blue-green planet, heartily agree with the writer.. The few times this has happened to me, I have managed to speak perfect British English to the perpetrator leaving him confused as to whether I’m black or white 😏 😁

The Vintage Afro

Hot mid-morning scorching sun overhead my protruding forehead as I wait for the rest of my team to join me outside of a landmark building at a well known CBD location in Nairobi. I feel a slight vibration on the side of my big nude handbag, which signals me that my team is about to arrive.As I scuffle with my handbag’s residents to get my tools of trade, my team approaches.Two dapper looking young men who have gained favour from the gods of age to look deceitfully younger and a trim bodied lady who also didn’t look a day past 21. At most! Together, the four of us looked like that fantastic four. Only this version was that of the unfocussed campus (if not high school) ne-er do wells who lacked motivation, drive and vision. Did I say it was HOT? And don’t get it twisted either, we looked very…
