I marvel at the way

Taunters justify and say

tis a tradition and needs no reaction

Sad! With today’s intellect and technology


A pox on all those thoughts!


Veins are connected

A running blood goes through it

Gayly working with other organs

In feelings of ecstasy and 

Never wanting to die before the whole

Ah! But superior and low confidentias care less


Now! Please stop!

Overbearing beings, please feel

Taste their shoes and feel the death of their pleasure


A stitch in time, they say, saves disgrace


Shiver and quiver

Nets are for fishes

Africa needs a light

Kill those thoughts

Emancipate your minds and let the clits be

  1. You are so very right. I always raise my voice against blindly-following traditions and values. Everything should make sense cause doing it for the sake of it is just an excuse for us to look and sound foolish and stupid. I wish we could do better as humans and use our brains.

    Kind Regards,
