Old Mrs Idunnu


Old grumpy Mrs Idunnu
That old woman living in my compound
Her face is always decorated with frowns
Striving to prove her name wrong


Old stiff Mrs Idunnu
That old woman who sits outside my compound
Her face is always pinched
Especially when my siblings are happy


Old lonely Mrs Idunnu
That old woman who lives alone
Her hands are always busy picking beans
Especially when our friends come to visit


Old Mrs Idunnu
That rather spirited woman
Today she's wearing a smile on her face
Her mouth is busy reading out words
From the Bible Mom gave her.


*Idunnu means Happy

What's the essence of caring if you can't make a difference, just like eggs, we must pass through different stages to realise our chances

Fate is what happens
When the chicks break and crack
From inside to life.
