Listen to the Beat of My Heart

Updated on January 25, 2019

Unquestionably, I am in love for a start

I understand the politics of the heart

How can I tell that it's love on my part?

I listen to the beat of my heart...



When it goes: brick-a-brack-a-booooom-shaka-splat

I realize it's running on flats

'cos the cause of the palpitations and all what not

Is simply a glimpse of my wife - my marital juggernaut



When its tremors go trick-a-track-jiggedly-jack

I realize I am in trouble's path

'cos it means the Banns of marital chastity

Is heading for banal promiscuity...


If it turns 360 and goes Gbam-bada-gbam

There is only one person who can ooze that charm

Her serene eyes and graceful demure aura

Announce the presence of my daughter, Deborah.


What does your heart say, friend and brother?

Does it say: faithful lover or scream: terrible liar?

When I want to know if I am true on my part

I listen to the beat of my heart.

      Dhak-dhak means heart-beats. Like you wrote brick-a-brack-a-booooom-shaka-splat. OK?

      Thanks, Kulsum. Just the dhak-dhak is what confuses me.
