Rent for Mom

 By Wilson Orhiunu

 

With no tenancy agreement

I took up residence

No bills to pay

free food all day

I had peace

and great contentment

 

I had no gain full employment

You didnít kick me out

I slept, grew fat

You eat, grew fat

And I never

once paid  the rent

 

Tell me, where do I send the rent

My mother,  who I love.

Nine months harboured

and then laboured.

Please charge interest

to your contentment.
