A WOMAN WITH ACTIVE HOLE

DSCF1010

Ao! She has told me blankly

I went to bath my hair

But I ended up staining my ears

Abena, I have heard it all now

II

She says I have a hole like her

And I need a digger, lest it fills up with dirt

She said she has been studying me like a cat

And has seen no digger’s feet in my compound

So she shyly barks my beauty as she tells me my duties

Abena I have heard it all now

III

Maybe she wants me to be like her

With a digger still digging her bottomless pit

And digging all her siblings and visitors

While starving her nourishing edibles

And making her fend for the golden dirt he digs out of her

Abena, I have heard it all now

IV

What makes many trashy mouths bold?

Do I look like one dirt is to be sold?

One look at her and I needed not be told

That she languishes in painful ignorant-minded cold

And needs a great mind to hold

Or she will never find her prideful gold

Abena, I am struck into disbelief, my mouth peg-folded
