Fúnmi

By Kehinde Adeniji 2 weeks ago

She sat, watching the road 

From the balcony of Bàbá Àgbà's house. 

The other girls were in the kitchen, 

She wasn't interested.

Inside the house held no appeal, 

She had stayed indoors all-day 

Nothing to pass the time with, 

No light or she would have watched the TV. 

No books, maybe she would have traveled through their pages. 

Half-mad with boredom, 

She took to watching the streets 

Counting the vehicles as they passed by

And persons as they walked past. 

She looked to the horizon, smiling sadly. 

Tomorrow is yet another day of misery,

boredom and street watching.
