TRIBUTE TO POUNDED YAM
11th January, 2016

Depths beyond ground surface 
Months of survival struggle
Vying for nutrients to live
In a Sambisa plantation.


Gleaned by poor Mustapha 
Journeyed miles from yonder
Making way to Aboki in Warri
And Mama Nkiru's 'bukateria'.


Peeled, washed, boiled & pounded
A New baby is born
Served hot with Okazi soup
Alongside 'orisirisi' animals.


Some choose the Western way
Fork and Knife to demolish you
Your shadow lurking around
You will be angry if I do same.


My hand will do justice 
I want you to land unscathed 
Safely in the abode of my stomach 
For I am just a hungry engineer.
