You were never tired,not for once,
To crack your knuckles near the crackling fire
And heave your breast under the smoky choke.
When I bite her nipples,
When i pee-d on her laps-she patted my bum,
Her eyes shed their dowry to offer me comfort at night,
Tears laid in idle sums.
She was the igbo gladiator sown into a tender skin,
It was from her learned bossom i sucked the milk of courage,
it was from there,
That i saw the world come at me,
she hammered to my chest her words of comfort.
i was a fire starter to be,
Fierce and intrepid,
A constant enforcer than the bee,
Never bare of its sting.
a gift,beyond boundaries and vicinities,
a divine call answered in diversity,
Offered are the services in portions,
A lamp for the yet unknown.
Maami was an infectious beispiel,
a thoroughfare to many virtuous secrets.
(Dedicated to my own madre,Late ESTHER OMOSOLA nee WABARA)
