He said I am not opening a mini store
To be given a thousand and four
…hundred a month
When I am also paid every month

He said I should live by my salary
So my husband can build with his salary
To give me and mine a place to live
While emphasising his freedom to leave

He said a man needs money for his side chick
And a wife needs to let in the side chick
Whiles using her money for domestics
For a husband must get money to spend on his side chick’s cosmetics

He said a woman needs to always comply
Never try to put her husband in a state where he must silly answers reply
And to treat myself of  infections
While quietly working for his loving affections

I looked at the subman and chuckled
Remembering my grandma’s tale of a man who was cuckold
And brought down onto his knees from his high horses
By a woman he thought would abide by his rude causes

I remember my grandma’s advice of staying off akwaajadu’s
Who a woman can hardly introduce even to the known family of the Adu’s
As their pomposities end up as calamities
And their horrors of mistreatments go far into  extremities

And again I chuckled at the half man with muscles
Who wishes a woman will stay with his many poor hustles
And thanked Odomankomah I never met his kind
And that I would never ever have to pay him mind

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
