EMEFA (AN ODE)

Ayigbe Gazelle

 

Great, graceful gait, … trendy tread,

Swaggish sway, incarcerating smile!

Curvy defense, artistic contours

Work of the Greatest artist,

You’re 16 @ 52, puberty in menopause,

Ayigbe gazelle,

National conversation stopper,

Millennium face turner,

But in all these,

Friendly moralist.

How much more joy you carry

That I wish I could be made to know!

Race away not with my feeble heartbeat

Just let your warmth provide needed heat.
