Dear Sister [Dear Sister]

I pen this down to you
My blood, my flesh, my sister
I chew these words
To feed you in bits

Listen sister,
Innocence grows to lust
When they see your cleavages
Ah! Your heavy perfumes
Are toxins to male spirits

Do you too stand
At junctions
Waiting diligently
For wealthy phalluses

Why expose your wares
For the souls of men
To study – lost in lust
You kill your integrity
And make decency a foe

Is it for money?
It vanishes…
Is it for fame?
It fades away…
