The Newest Bride in Oyo State Government House

By
Bukola Hameed

Time will tell
What a man has in stock

Time will divulge
what a man hides
and conceals

Time will tell
what a man’s true colour is
and lay bare what he loves
hates and cherishes

Just like Time has told
what lots have told
the gullible toad
in its mash
bequeathing them with flash
of curse, praise and, or flush

Time will tell
who you are
and what you are
with what you wear
in the open
and in the hidden

Be calm
never rush to promise
study the terrain
know how it rains
and when it rains

That, when time will tell
it will say good
before we, or you bid goodbye

Time will tell
for the newest “bride”:
eschew pride
