Onugbu

Radiant Skin
Her melanin fights against the hot sun
As she plucks onugbu
The heat is too much
Sweat runs down her forehead into her eyes
She rubs her eyes
Chai! She yells  
Burning sensation
Blurred vision
But she does not make any more noise
Because she knows no one will come
She bends over and waits for the pain to subdue

The Afrolegalise
