Off to the kitchen, I went;
And in few minutes the food is ready.
Red blooded vegetable
Only that it was not pounded yam
But the ‘fufu’ will sure do
“You cook so well” they commend and I’m like…
You weren’t there when my brother and I
Our own meals had to make
You don’t know the number of ‘dodo’ I burnt
Before mummy B her lessons she gave
Or the times grandma and I
Had with the little we had
Different recipes to try
Now, I stand a better cook
Than an average young man
I wish I was made for the kitchen
But then I have better things to do
A world of wisdom and perception
A world of words and melodies
I love my life.
Enjoy your evening.
