Akinyele

Akinyele is a man now.

he no longer pulls his nickers to pee like he used to do before

when we where young,

he now wears them far below his waist.

I wonder how he walks.

 

Akinyele is a man now,

he drinks bitter tea and orange scented water.

I hear he speaks through his nose too,

forgets to pronounce his `Tee`s and says `INNIT`,

teacher Bola would not be happy.

 

Akinyele is a man now,

they say he no longer prostrates when greeting elders

the cold must have entered his joints

we will have to fix that.

 

 

Akin brought a white woman home.

I wonder if she would be staying for our marriage.

 

 

Akin has not come to my hut yet

he must be shy now.
