This poem was written on my birthday (September 9) by one of my Facebook friends. I decided to post it here today. 🙂
Stroll through her timeline
You are sure there to find
accolades that blow the mind
For lots and lots have been said
That it seems needless to say mine
But No, this day has the Lord made
And I’m so rejoicing along with her
For having travelled down thus far.
Permit me to tell you
Just the little that I know
She’s like the cloud so blue
Yet she most radiantly glows
With great virtues; White as snow
OK, Now, let me give you just a clue.
Her smile is like the Egyptian Nile
That overflows its bank and flows
Wide across the vast barren lands
The chilling perched tongue of sands
By its shores, leaving behind
Twinkles of tantalizing afterglow.
OK, yeah! As for her favorite dish?
It’s gotta be garnished with dried fish
Well, maybe that sounds outlandish
But, the truth is… She’s food-wise selfish
I mean, she won’t surrender easily
what’s hers. The food? Her goals!
She goes after them, not clumsily
But ferociously, to its very souls.
Wait, did I succeed in confusing you
Well, I’m also confused myself
Gotta find my lost self in my shelf. 🙂
OK, one last thing for ya
She’s tattooed with cute dimples
And stands tall like the Himalaya
When embargoes grow, she tramples
On them with the feet of confidence
Yeah, she’s that complicatedly simple
Yet moves with ethereal resplendence
What you read is her clean sample.
Hooray!!! It’s her birthday…
Let’s give it up for her!
Happy birthday to you and Congratulations.
Wishing you more dried fish in your Afang soup. Cheers!

PS: On Facebook, I’ve always written about my love and craving for dried fish in Jollof rice and soups. He obviously picked on that for humour effects. Lol.
Peace and Love!
