Do Not Urinate Here - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Do not urinate here they say,
But nature is calling us furiously;
Should we just hold on and not
Response to nature's call?
Oh that is outragious thing to do.
When that call holds you tight and
You tighten your two legs shaking and
Looking dejected and rejected like a child who missed his way and could not find his mother.
Most especially if it happens to be the one that
Comes out from the anus, oh; I mean 'shit'
'Shit, shit' that shattered the unborn child' dream.
Oh I must not be disgraced by this little thing,
Oh I must fine a place to put my bombom; be it inside bush or I dig hole and hole my 'shit' inside.
Oh, who would eat that shit? !
Oh, who would taste that salty water from a needless pipe that no one could see coming but the gods? !
Do not urinate here they say but, we must answer the nature whenever she calls us because; she is our mother and a child can't fail to answer his mother.
Oh, that is an abomination to the Nkporo clans!
They can collect fine from us for answering mother' call.
Do not urinate here they say, but we must answer nature's call or she would disgrace us in the public.
