CAN I COME HOME ALONE?
As I moved in ‘ Ile aworimi’,
eyes gaped, a dry run for ‘ Olori Ebimi ‘.
Your libido makes stories for the town
but no one dared children of your crown.
Yes, you were more horrendous
than sins of Cain.
Your child has gone places, no one marvelous
like Adunni’s Cain.
Neighbors think I am simply arewa.
Mother or father, I choose none.
Mayegun I am alone…
Can I come home alone?
Siblings have rejiggered counterclockwise,
everyone has turned my ice.
