Urunwa: The Lamentations of A Mother

Come here shameless man
I’m not going to die with the
truth in my mouth.
She was just a baby;
Urunwa was just a baby
when you cut her
saying it will help her
not to be promiscuous.
Belonwu!
I bu onye ajo omume
You and Ichie Jamuike turned my
daughter’s name into a curse!
Now,
Yobachi says Urunwa lies
like a log of wood every night. . .
Belonwu!
You should be ashamed your
daughter feels nothing under
a grip of a man like Yobachi!
Belonwu!
Woe betides you!
You have eaten your daughter’s clitoris
And now she knows no fun;
My Urunwa is now an agadi nwaayi at 35!
She is now a Mother of plenty children from other
Akpa nwa!
You are a bastard Belonwu!
You ruined my daughter!
May that palm wine suffocate you
May Amadioha strike you
May Ala roast your manhood.
Belonwu!
Accept death!
‘cos nothing can stop your doom.
I am Iweobiegbulam
but I’d rather die of anger
than forgive you!
