Please Purify and Placate My Soul

By Ndaba Sibanda

Please Purify and Placate My Soul

I recall when I asked you to be my juice,
elixir, honeybun, you said you are profuse

under the spell of your touch and scent
I did not comprehend what you meant

honeybun, you taught me what sunburn
is, honey, I love how you punch heartburn

let me unlock your feats, your benefits --
as laudable gels are your byproducts

we all seek to stay happy and hydrated
water-dense, you can't be underrated

you help us detox, purge and flush out
impurities, as we take you after a workout

soothing like a careful, cool sweetheart
massaging like a caring, cleansing dearest

when one wants to keep the skin clear
and hydrated, they take you without fear

you don't only heal burns, there is a wealth
of proof that you boost oral and digestive health

you excite me as you inspire peristalsis to help pass
stool without hurt or hassle, you are in your class!

natural laxative, go on fixing fissures, treating the skin
aloe vera, you patch up puffy gums, sunburn, heartburn

you come to our rescue when we are constipated
your nutrients and benefits leave us captivated
