EMMAN USMAN SHEHU


Concordance

Season after season she cuts
a picture of uncertainty,
held down by their hearsays,
in this city without pity.

One day she shuts her brimming ears,
takes the plunge from the springboard
into the pool of matrimony,
thrashing for strokes of harmony.

He makes sacrificial adjustments
punching gaping holes in those hearsays,
and both hearts make disbursements,
one for all, all for one.
