                   DEEPER  THAN  TEARS.
Mummy  is  blessed,
Binta Sadiq  isn’t  dead,
As  I  progress  to  search
Beside  her  bed.
What  letters  do  I  forfeit?
For  you  the  genesis  of
You  soiled  and  made
The  glamorous  pageant  now
Leaves  in  a  curfew.
Bundle  of  double  rotten
Weeks  after  mourning,
Binta’s  very  much  fresh
And  smells  well
Like  the  hibiscus  look,  
During  morning  dew.
I  spoke  with  your  offspring
The  brilliant  young  king  and
His  pretty  beauty  queen,
I  remember  the  day  you
Touched  me
And  the  songs  you  clothed
In  me,
You  also  said  you  loved  me.
The  calendar  continues  to
Count  like  centuries
In  my  heart  I  see  it  as
Ten  minutes,
I  still  hear  you  sing.
Gossips  say  you  have  gone  
Some  said  it  was  a  bee  sting.
I  can  guaranty  your  quality
That  you  presently  leave  next
To  The  Almighty’s  Sit,
You  also  drink  from  His  healthy
Tea  till  eternity,
We  the  living  continuously  celebrate
That  evening,
When  tears  mixed  in  all  I  was
As  your  eyes  melt  and  went  
With  the  season.
Rest  in  no  pain,
As  your  fame  is  the  reason
I  make  this  page.
Tribute  to  the  name  of
Binta  Sadiq.
                                                                                                                             AKEWUSOLA  HABIB.
