Missing Melanin Melanie

Your skin glows like lightbulbs,
Your hair’s white and fair,
Eyes pink-rimmed just like a bunny rabbit,
Pale tongue like a calf,
I hobbled you, so you couldn’t flee,
Force-fed you milk soaked grain,
Made sure you had all the cable TV
You would ever want to watch,
And did I love you? Sure I did …
I tended to you daily, cleaned up
Your milky messes, and treated you
Like you were still my girlfriend,
Sexually,
But you’re not my girlfriend anymore,
You shut the door on that shit, honey,
And I’m having a dinner party
Tomorrow night, yesiree-bob I am,
And you’re not going to slaughter yourself.
