The Wedding Of The Millenium - Poem by ifedayo oshin

the groom,
the sun, deified the time
and denied the dark its peak,
shimmering in his faded orange apparel
his eyes brilliantly blazing, brazen and bold
found a gazing spot
at the heart of the brown sea
and whispered with quivering lover's lips
'come up to me and taste of my love'

the bride,
the sea, deified space
with wrapper of blue wound round her waist
flrty, flitty and fidgety
her body danced with seductive rhtym
she spread sprawlingly on the spaceles sandbed
a bride expectant of a reluctant groom
burning, she bellowed from deep below
'come down and prove yourself a worthy lover'

the priest,
gravity, kitted in a monk's garb
ritually performed the nuptial rites
toyin-blakkie was the bride's lone maid
Abdulkarim and I, the twosome groom's men

Hosted by the surf and sand of Kuramo shores
the three for the deaprture of one
feasted on a garnished gargatuan fish
there the sun found walked the aisle by his bride
