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
Basements of decency,
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
In labour rooms.
