pearl

by m.j total
(nigeria)

Once upon a time
I met a girl
She said to me
Her name was Pearl
She had long hair
Brown with curls
But,
Her mind was in a whirl

Quickly,
Around her I swirled
To chase flies off her curls
Then told her the story of Earl
Who was blessed with two girls

For them he bought pearls
And would give them the whole earth
But,
When they erred
He turned into a flare
And when they gazed with scare
He vanished into air

We never again heard of Earl.
