Abiku speaks

Abiku speaks..... sickle cell patient

Let me go, for I’m in pains    
COS I’m guilty not,
In this case. 
COS all these, are your own faults.

Am not as wicked as you think, 
for I also
Wish to stay as other babies 
Only for you, to   
Have denied me, the right to 

I tried pleasing you, b’cos  
Staying a week is a difficult 
I wonder whom you lent your 
Cos all this, has Mendel said.      

Far down early 1880s,  
But it’s a pity, people still fall 
victims, till late 1990s.              
Always will I keep to the soil, 
I have no strength, to endure 
the pains

All your claims are correct 
For I challenge you, to show just
One, of those who came back not
With their two ears 

I will only stay,   
If you do as the doctor says,        
“Check your rhesus and your 
“Before stepping into 

But, if you yield not to 
Then, in vain will nine month 
For, in my royal gourd,  
Will I abide!!!
