Trying For A Baby Boy: - Poem by ifedayo oshin

Unspoken, unwritten
Subtle but strong demand:
From husband to retinue of in-laws
A baby boy is it! !
Frantic in efforts, feverish in thoughts
Turgid with trauma
Incomplete, insecured
For the seventh time
She pushed her luck too far
A baby boy, she must have! !
Sick and tired
pulling through the month of decision
Weakened body, frightened soul
Lengthtened labour, heightened pains
Hearmorrahage heralded the horrors
Attended by uterus rupture
Followed by tragic drama at ceasarian theatre
All for the baby boy
A'las! It was a big, bouncing baby boy
A motherless baby boy! ! !
