How The World Will Learn - Poem by Tony Adah

If a bachelor travels
Who will stock his fire?
If a widow discriminate men
Where is her own?
Palm wine tappers do not refuse
To lend themselves empty gourds
If masquerades come from the same forest
Should they disparage themselves in songs?
If you have now; give me your roasted yam
For mine is still on fire.
And if you're in dearth;
Eat as if your gums ache
And this how the world will learn.
