**first in a short series. Stay tuned**
I have heard about you.
I have been shown how to identify your type.
They say you will have your wares loaded and set.
Like a beautifully crafted letter,
punctuated in the right places.
They say I need to take heed
‘cos my head will agree with my eyes,
and in fact my loins too.
They say the roll of your hips
will fashion me a third leg,
and the lilt in your voice
will keep ringing in my head.
They say you come
with sweetened lips and honeyed tongue.
They told me the truth about you,
that like ‘Ajao’, whose hands outstretch its thighs
your value stops at your looks.
who really are a sight for sore eyes
have in your inside, pure rottenness.
‘Wole is an everyday poet – he dreams. He is an incurable optimist who spends his days trying to be less analytical.
