Mama Peace vs Papa Peace (Part 2)



NOTE:
I wrote the first part of this poem - the wife's side - sometime ago. Read here.
This second part is a response from the man...................................................

I no blame you
See your mouth like mumu.
You no know how I be
Before you agree marry me?
Abegi, I happy to go ! 

My belle dey sweet
Because your wahala be like meat;
Wey don spoil sotay....
People dey smell am from far far away.
Abegi, I happy to go !

You sabi sleep church
But your tafia tooo much.
You even be church leader
But your ashewo no get meter.
Abegi, I happy to go !

Yes, I carry your sister
But you follow my brother.
Yes, I follow Dora
But you kele Pastor.
Abegi, I happy to go !

I even thank God
Say na only Peace be my blood.
The other four go surely go prison
So wetin be my own ?
Yeye woman, I don dey go !


mumu = fool
Abegi = Please (sarcastically)
belle = tummy
wahala = trouble
sotay = so much, so badly
tafia = being nosy, gossiping
ashewo = prostitute
kele = to sleep/ have sex with
wetin = what
yeye = useless

English Version:
I really cannot stand you
With your mouth like a shrew.
You knew what I was
Before you latched onto me with your claws.
Puhleasse..I am glad to go ! 

My mood has now turned sweet
Because your attitude stinks like meat
That has become so putrid
Its smell travels far far afield.
Puhleasse..I am glad to go ! 

You are always the last to leave church
Yet you gossip so much.
In church you are a cornerstone
Yet your promiscuity is well known.
Puhleasse..I am glad to go !

Yes, I slept with your sister
But you ravished my brother.
Yes, I cheated with Dora
But you seduced the Pastor.
Puhleasse..I am glad to go !

I even thank God
That only Peace is truly my  blood.
The other four are surely prison-bound
So why should I hang around? 
Puhleasse..I am glad to go !

  19. That was some effort to write a poem in pidgin! This is a first for me to read. Have you considered writing a collection of poems in pidgin English? I'm sure there could be some market for it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. see o, every story has two sides. mama peace don talk her own, papa peace don talk 'im own. 'e dey happy to go.lol.I hope I got the pidgin o.

    'You no know how I be
    Before you agree marry me?
    Abegi, I happy to go ! '

    This line just emphasizes what is wrong in a lot of marriages today. The girl usually is blinded by 'love' and refuses to see what is wrong with the man's character. In the end the girl is the one ridiculed. Not only that, mama peace in the name of probably getting back at her husband has committed her own atrocities too...or she also had some bad qualities that made them both a match for each other.

    Abeg make them carry go.lol.

    nice one
