SATIRE
SPECIAL POEM : A Tale of 2 Women
By Sylvia Olayinka Blyden
Jun 20, 2014, 17:14

One was only a lowly enrolled nurse

With probably nothing in her purse

The other was a powerful minister

With access to cash & political power

 

The former is now dead; stone dead

Whilst the latter is too big-headed

To know she has gravely offended

Memory of another woman now dead

 

But can you blame the minister?

When shameless acts widely scatter?

Shamelessness thriving as Disaster looms

Clerk of Parliament nods as Evil blooms

 

But no matter the press releases

And supposed shows of solidarities

The dirty deed of the female minister

Against the dead female nurse is bitter

 

Because the minister is no more a woman

Than the dead nurse was herself a woman.

I repeat, the minister is no more a woman

Than the dead nurse was herself a woman.
