Oh My Dear Daughter!

Oh my dear daughter!
Every time I come to your room
I meet you reading

Reading something

It is commonly said:
“No matter how educated a woman can be
she will still end up in the kitchen”

It is true
Yet I will encourage you to keep reading
For the more you read

The more educated you can be

The better your kitchen will be

So if you end your education
With primary six

You’ll be cooking with firewood

If you end your education
With WAEC or GCE
You’ll be cooking with kerosine

If you end your education
With B.A B.Sc or M.Sc
You’ll be cooking with
Both gas and electricity

And if you end your education
Being a professor
You’ll only be instructing

The maids cooking for you and your family;
So my daughter, keep reading
