INVITATION TO THE GRAVE

Father, grandfather, great-grandfather

I’ve heard your cry

Far from the dungeon 
Inviting me to the tearless
Where my plights would be addressed  

 
But you know father,

I can’t come now!

I’m just a mundane street roamer

Roaming aimlessly

On this desolate street of Ai-Igado

In quest of my lost turtle dove 

To forfeit to Ichekpa

Which you left unappeased

I can’t lodge in a shattered home
So says the Akpandede*

*Akpandede is swift (a bird) in Idoma language in Nigeria
