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

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
