Baa Baa Black Sheep

Poem By Adaobi Chiemelu

BAA BAA BLACK SHEEP


Blessed
And
Awkward

Black sheep, have you any shame? Walking in that tufted behind and scoffing though that's lame.
Let me tell my own story and you'll see we're the same,
Two people on a blank page though we don't share the same name.

Myopic

My opinion is in a messy box
It used to follow a sect of duck-trines in that same box
Duck-trines groomed in the form of a spider
It was caught in the spider's web which wilt wider

Him

HIM

He's sitting there like an open book, waiting for me to read him
A part of him poking out, waiting for me to search him

Early To Bed

Early to bed

I'm seeking sleep eagerly
Cause I want to have my color when I wake up in the morning

Sweet Motherhood

Sweet motherhood 1

It's a special delight talking about her children
About the things they said and the way they had said the things they said

Broken Class

Class upon class
Meet at an edge
Discuss briefings from a steady hand cut ledge
What happens in class
