(For the scholarly Scholar)
By Tikum Mbah Azonga
Thanks for the meal
It’s nothing short of a solemn seal
It may have nothing to do with fortune’s wheel
But for God’s sake, it’s not unreal.
That moment will remain indelible
I sat next to you at last! How incredible!
I got drawn into your angelic eyes like in some fable
My little heart pounded and made me feel feeble.
Ever since I left your darling
I’ve got in trouble with my whole being
How can I thus revel while sinking?
Dear, living without you is simply another way of dying.
