...by Poetic Tee "Here, take a sip"

Who else is not with you on this?
Who else is not born of a mother?
Who else is an ungrateful ingrate?
Who else is wombless in origin, artificial, a clone?
Who else is deaf, dumb and blind to her real worth?
"Nneka" says the Igbo, "Mother is supreme"
"Iyani wura" says the Yoruba, "Mother is gold"
"Uwata, ta fi ta kowa" says the Hausa, "My mother is the best"
"Honor thy mother (thrice)" says the Rasool.
"Be dutiful and kind to your mother" Says The Almighty Allaah.
