An Ornament - Poem by BAYO SALAWU

A call to their abode
Read out their traits
Pecking the floor with their heels
Scattering all over without fear
With their nearly naked wears

Claiming of drinking civilization
With glass cup of westernization
Turning spotty red; dark complexion
And beautifully ugly they turned

In myriad of filthy field again
Caught my sight an ornament
Showed distinctly among others
Like a golden fish in the river

For amorous spectacles of her face
Praise the naturalness of her lace
Hello to all chaps; her appearance bids
And to this I yield; an appreciation
To the good nature of an ornament
The handiwork of Almighty God
