THE GHOST AFFAIR 5 (The Valentine Night)
For two ghost to fall in love should
Not be taken for a love cartoon
Since the quest to love is not alone for mortal souls who
Sleep at night to hide away from shining moon
So I promise you my boo:
Until brides begin to pay dowries for their bridegroom
And window size for rest rooms begin to share the same size with living room
I’ll live a ghost to be your fool
Until libraries cease to be where people visit to read book
And Nigerian mommies cease to pick their beans before they cook
My lady, I’ll live a ghost to be your fool.
