BRIDE PRICE

25 litres of palm wine; two
10 rolls of Ankara, red and blue
50 tubers of yam
One spotless ram

…Is your daughter for sale?

Two mighty bottles of gin
Adding kolanuts too won’t be a sin
Beverages for the aged of the household
And cash for the young and the not too old

…Is your daughter for sale?

Our abode needs renovation
Her siblings need education
My brother’s daughter’s husband gave him a four wheel
‘Nothing spoil’ if me too have such feel

…Is your daughter for sale?

…If maltreated, can you go for her bail?
