Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
overcast summons the gloom
in some to feel low as a stomped foot
yet it sings nostalgia within mine ears
back to a cloudy day
in the heart of autumn
when a rose of an emotion
was growing within this yearning heart;
a time existed when my feelings
of the overcast was as conventional
as the missionary position
but one day as the clouds
put a full nelson on the sun
my spirit was awakened
in spite of the overcast
