Son, sit down and let these words sink
Deep in between your ears
Get wisdom so long you may live
To overcome all your fears
Son, don’t stay out too long in the night
For in darkness nothing happens right
Lost souls hover, dark angels scavenge
Preying on innocent beings for revenge
Remember you left your wife at home
No blankets, bed sheets torn
Won’t you save her from cold?
Your chest is the only warmth she’s ever known
Son, your child has stopped suckling breasts
You should be home making another baby
And your wife, didn’t you see her shaking her legs?
Late night drinks are for the impotent and the lazy
Son, didn’t you hear the hyenas laugh
And leopards are not friendly to strangers
Your wife has still kept the lights on, come home, come home
You will be safe in her arms
For danger lurks in darkness.
