Damsel from Ughele
My Urhobo queen
With beauty unparalleled

Precious like gold
Shining like a diamond
You stand out in the village
My gratitude to the ancestors
Who preserved you for me
They will always have their libation

You hold me spellbound
And dazzle me with your being
You whet my appetite
With your oghwo-evwri
For when I dip in the usi
I keep longing for more

I will ever love you
With my erhi and ugboma

*A response to Kukogho Iruesiri Samson’s ‘Omotughele’
