The Heir - Poem by Asaolu Abayomi

Screams unheard
shouts in vain
plea turned down
don't make me a woman yet
I will give you without stress
who is making you a woman?
Silence restored
off he goes
down she lies
struggling to survive
making it impossible.

Who did this?
who have the gut
who tried this?
for what?
ifakunle please tell me
ifakunle said he is angry
also hungry
he will always do
one day he will stop
what does he mean?

Another gone?
despite our plea to the gods
Omoade my son
please be careful
prey and predator
who is hunting who?
alas the gods are angry
who offended the gods

why should you defend him
he is your kinsman
give him to us
he has killed enough
let us kill him
before you free him
bring him to me
yes sir
yes I am a man
die the way you killed her
he was right
he wasn't the one but who?

our heir?
no he is the one
not our heir
oh its our heir for real
he is innocent
what a world

I love you
and want to marry you
really shocked but will do
tell me how those years went
lie down before I kill you like others
one year of my pain for one
you are exposed just surrender
no! ! !

report this to all
it wasn't the heir
it was him who did it
your kinsman
no I will never
I will rather die for truth
will never live with lies
just be wise boy
I am not a boy
whatever, be wise
are we free indeed?
