Dripping Blood And Fleshy Flesh by emaculate99: 6:15pm On Dec 25, 2015
Oke Ogbo, Ife,
24th December, 2015
***
To Yam
The area inside the barn.
****
Through pounded yam,
Down deep in the hole.
****
Dear Ma,
****
Have always thought you are bad,
Ranging from evil to worse,
Smiling with the hatred of the old,
But, mistaken I think I am.
****
I have always with my knife,
Try to attack you till you die,
I wish I am a protector,
To protect your sojourn so far,
Caring and moving with no fear,
For you I will always praise.
****
Give me a chance to appreciate you,
Your plight I guess I know now,
The death you died hastened by mortar
And the cruelty of the pestle, I plead.
****
I will stop the swordsman act,
Change my ways to guide your life,
From kidnapper to protector,
To appreciate your effort on my health.
****
Dead you are and buried in my interment,
But the days you spent laughing and running
In pant, vividly, I still remember.
****
I know I’m bad but I’ve realised my mistake,
I wish not to kidnap you anymore but be
Your protector, protecting you till the
Last drop of your blood to be taken by my knife,
For a reward, I will need for the job well-done.
****
Reward to give, nothing greater than your
Graceful protection of my health,
This only your life can achieve, not until
When you are now old to be gone.
****
Your dripping blood and fleshy flesh,
Will I take till my health now crammed to
Protect and get a new daughter for you,
This, the way it’ll go till the world
Goes up in flames and I, ground I enter.
*****
Wish you could grant my hearty request,
My heart, will be put in service for you,
Forever, I will hail you,
And new daughters, I will provide.
***
A very big thank you, my lady.
***
Yours faithfully,
Emaculate Ife
