Mother Tongue - Poem by Tony Adah

I killed a poem with my bad grammar
For I too I am a second language man
I moulded a poem with my thoughts
For I too I am a human being
When next you read lines;
Know that I have my mother tongue
I shudder to think what mother will
Say of my deviation
Were she lettered in her mother tongue
