Condoms, Condoms, Condoms
So slippery when wet
And so squishy when dry

Used condoms outside the Kandapara brothel in Tangail.

 

Condoms, Condoms, Condoms
So light is one of you when worn
And so heavy do you make our hearts when our period is missed

I never knew you could expire
I always thought you are here to say, just like honey

I have met the latex you
And have only heard of the lambskin you

I see a lot of the male you around
And I hardly see the female you anywhere

Many people say they don’t enjoy the sweetness when they wear you
Other people say you feel alright

Very few people are willing to shout out your name at the shop
And most certainly, much fewer can fight for you, the way they fought for toilet paper when COVID-19 had just kicked in.

Many of us have claimed to use you even when we are blindfolded
But is that really true?

You come in so many flavours
But in very few sizes….why is that?

Condoms, Condoms, Condoms
You are created to be a barrier
But why do some of us pull you off just when we are about to ejaculate?

Condoms, Condoms, Condoms
I do wish we carried you around like the way we carry around handkerchiefs
Because hey….it’s a very crazy time and world we live in, out here, right?

You have facilitated life in a very good way
But the way we blame you for causing immorality amongst our people baffles so many minds

Do you happen to know some of the nicknames you are called?
I bet you will roll on the ground, wherever you are!!!
