Mama



You are the native soup inside my bowl.
You are the soft melody within my soul.
You taught me how to till the ground.
You tilled me into a man all round.
Sometimes I feel I've sucked four breasts;
Those of my mummy plus your own.
That is why I kneel & beg Our Father:
"Please take not your daughter away with the rest
Until I, her grandson, am full grown."
