Mgbeke - The Bad Daughter
Mgbeke! Mgbeke! !
i spit out your name in despair
how many times did i admonish thee
to take to heart,
the home syllabus and kitchen scheme of work
you avoid the kitchen hearth
and chose your path in the sand
In the morning, the birds chirps
in the night, the crickets chirps
i work alone
drenched in my sweat all day in lone.
as i work my hands in the meal of the day:
back bent, piston pounding, cassava boiling –,
soup aroma ascending
with you not in sight, my back ache
