Cheapest of all my meritorious acquisitions
Dearly is the price I pay to be deserving daily
Tongues and tribes hail for your sweet portions
Yet in my belittled bosom you render services unfailingly

Many mighty men of great caste have fallen
Men of wisdom sang eulogy, wrote verses “eye for an eye” to lure your feet
Blood from guts spilled for the soil to drink in
Yet they fail lacking a proficient ken of your feat

In my shuteye, you are my insurance
Lacking knowledge of that which strike, I know I’ll be fine
You are my life assurance
We both started not together, but with youyou shall end my line

The night is so young and day is dead to rise anew
Darkness has cut loose from it den
Awakes the beast that dwells in the depth of vain men
Slumber not my Ufuoma hear my sodding cry this time and heal my heart

‘O’ lady of mine, deception exist not in my words
I speak truth of you always even when there is non to be said
Accept my little offering I trot out naked at your feet
For I shall rest in your cuddling cozy arms forever, even in death.

    @ufuomaotebele bestow upon us your charm so we may have a taste of what it’s like to have boys swooning at our feet. O graceful one *bows

      @ayobare lol……funny you. Actually UFUOMA means PEACE so in the poem.he was referring to peace.

    I almost thought somebody has started pursuing your NS interest. But then @ufuomaotebele is not the only Ufuoma in town.

    This particular one seems to wield a more astounding influence than your own crush…lol

    1. @Afronuts, you’re inviting trouble abi? To tell you the truth, even if @ufuomaotebele is not the only Ufuoma on Ns, she’s such a rare specimen of womanhood. Her influence here on NS is, to say the least, highly remarkable.

      @Afronuts, before I forget, I’m trying my hand on a series, inviting you, @ayobare, @menoveg & @ameenaedrees to check it out at http://www.naijastories.com/2014/07/boss-wife-episode-2/ and comment, good or bad.

                @Afronuts, that was a lapsus lingo, sha, I mean you should enter the heart of your love, certainly not Princess Ufuoma, and lock yourself there. A trial will convince you…
