THE CHOICE: Kukogho Iruesiri Samson

Read Time:25 Second

you both did the waist dance
you the pot, he the lance

ecstasy in the arms of carelessness
careless seeding – two hearts become restless

to be
a single mother
reading spinster tips
or be
a wedded ‘bother’
under manly grips?

the girl whose lips was ‘softest’
soon turns something to detest

don’t force the dog to eat the bone
re-cook the bone, leave dog alone

to live
alone with hopes
of coming change
or live
bound with ropes
of vows exchange

it’s your choice
