May the devil take her!!!

GIDRAF MWANGI 1992 (Murang'a)

May the devil take her!
For all that she denies me
Misery that she bestows me
Fight her to her grave
 
Just because she has a beautiful head
And pretty silky hair
Justify not what she did to me
Alas! I could not believe it!
 
Nights I spent formulating
The many praises to shower her
Nearly getting myself insomnia
Though I gained nothing
 
Money got by hoaxing mother
Telling daddy of false tales
Missing my lunch times to save it
Trailed into total fiasco
 
Protection and care that I bestowed her
While she boasted of it
Purely got me nowhere
Whereas no harm befell her!
 
Holy mother of God! What did I do?
To fall in love with a haughty girl
Harping on the poverty in our home
Torturing me with her discretions
