A Future For The Girl-Child

Start her up with school
She’ll end up in tower and power

Give’em to teachers
They’ll show them light and right

Let her go to school
She’ll come home lawyer and engineer

Give her education
She will bring you honor and favor

Start up on the streets
She’ll end up in shame and blame

Give her to husband
She’ll bring you dowry of cowry

Leave her on the street
She’ll come home raped and abused

Give her hawking tray
She’ll sell you viles and lies.
