This Infirmity Our Curse? - Poem by Odumodu Remo

Few are the anniversaries that your haunted
Piercing your mortality with adent cruelty
This infirmity robbed us warmth
Robbed us your humour
Took away laughter from our teeth

Few are the anniversaries that are gone
And your mortality but robust
Even your livelyhood overwhelming
Wares would not allow us space to stand

And that noon came bearing unhearable news
We stood awe like they that dream
Though you were here with us almost 'halfly'
Do deliver my farewell
To my fathers before you.
