Anguished Cries Of Baby Brides - Poem by Chidi Anthony Opara

Bashful baby brides,
Unabashed ageing grooms
Encamped in rustic camps
And goaded into wed locks
By grandpas.
Days after,
Blood soaked diapers
Blight
Basements of decency,
Reprimanding,
Reminding
Of travails of brides
Enslaved in prime
In bulging harems.
Months after,
Bulged out bellies
Beget traumatized thighs
And lacerated labia.
Anguished cries
Of baby brides
Resonate
In labour rooms.
