She is fondly called…



It’s been a minutes…bur i want to hintroduce my friend, yety, she haff write a twoderful poem habout her ‘ongbona feli feli lover’ and I haff decided to share with you…

She is fondly called…

Tempt me not with this or that

for my heart craves for nothing more than this black beauty

softly sitted in the midst of this round platform

like a statue molded by the gentle hands of igbako


She embraces heat and takes no offense as she’s turned by the omorogun

dancing round and round they blend in one accord

for one can easily see how acquainted these two have truly become

for in delight her shyness burned in the hot pot


She moves gracefully to the omorogun’s rhythmic overtures

enticed by omorogun’s firmness and ease

deeper and deeper to the rhythm they flow

lost in the moment, spinning her around like magic it seems

her fragile bodily form unfolds,

her whitish skin changes in quick

Her powdery form melting away……

Yes, she’s turned

all black and all soft…..


A new name for a new face omorogun says……

a rare beauty, delightful to taste

my work here is done, he says…

            but before i go, a friend u must meet

a man of better hands,

he will not stop at sweat

igbako…how he is fondly called


With joy, Igbako touches gently

Setting his prey on a flat surface

a touch here, there, there, here

she yields to his strong and firm grips

he has done it again…


igbako calls to his light skinned friend, Egusi

stunned as he beholds this dark beauty,  Amala

“fear not”, he says,  meat and fish will guard you

Kpomo will be with you, stock fish will brighten your way

we will be together forever in time

together we shall be entwined

where u go amala, i will follow

even unto the mouths of men to be swallowed


A marriage, yes in truth

the union of these two

Amala and egusi, my heart desire

Amala, she is fondly called.

Yes, my burnny friend, Yetunde Ogunshakin iz a foodie like me…
