Once Upon A Spinster


Once upon a spinster,
Shining so brightly like a silver,
In the hope of a glorious future,
Just in the way of nature.

Once upon a spinster,
Smiling gaily like a star,
Happy on the face of a cloudless sky,
In one beautiful summer style.

Once upon a spinster,
Dressing beautifully like a sister,
Who sees tomorrow with assurance,
Of a profitable and sure insurance.

Once upon a spinster,
Treading cautiously like a cheetah,
So as not to fall a victim of love,
In the hands of brothers with lust.

Where have all the sweet memories of spinsterhood gone?

Forever they are gone like a dew dropp upon the rising of the sun!

Can you sing me a song to remind me of your spinsterhood dear Aderonke?

You were like an orchid in the spring during your spinsterhood.
Blooming with vigour and strength.
Radiating that fragrance sweeter far more than strawberry.

Remind me of your spinsterhood you the dark, elegant epitome of undiluted African beauty.

Remind me of the times when your heart beats rhythmically when you think of today.
When your heart sinks just thinking of the altar.

Whisper to my ears those words with which you used to comfort your hammering Veintrioles and your pulsating artricles.

Tell me, i urge you Grace tell me and let my heart rest.

Trumpet it to my ears Abeni Okanlawon and let my trembling hands stay in place.

Tell me today and let get it done.

Only today that tale can be told.
For in tomorrow you are no more a spinster.
Be happy Ronke, sing a music.
It is your day, it is your wedding, take the aisle.
You are now once upon a spinster.

Happy married life Abenz.
And all the good things of marriage are yours.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
