Happy Father’s Day to all fathers. Enjoy this piece:

Whoever said chicks follow hens

Wash your faces with treated water

And watch

It is that day

That day when some cocks act hens

As some hens model in cockdom 

This world!
II

It is this day

This day when the pains of motherhood

Root firmly in the sheltered sacks of fatherhood

This world
III

Not many hit to run

Not many seek the fun

Not many impose a ban

But many do as they can

Fathers
IV

So bring those flowers 

And shelve the towels

Build those houses 

And leave those sandals

Discard all bitterness 

And hail this plantation which blooms

Into a garden of fathering care

Exuding fragrance of love

In its rightful place 

Formerly loaded on tired femi-heads
