Tolani, the damsel every eye wanted to keep in sight,
every hand longed to feel and hug tight,
with the skin the sun never set eyes on,
beauty with good brains, everyone
followed her to have a pick on.
Calm like the dove, humble like the lamp
everyone's favourite, with smile that's heavenly.
...until she was robbed of her innocence,
dragged out of her heaven into misery
by a boy who refused to beckon on discipline
to help him put his manhood under the hood,
and teach him to put his ego in check.
Her big NO was a slap on his handsome face,
and all his empty head could come up with, to keep face
was to force himself on her and put her in a phase.
A phase that forced her into the family way,
the way she diligently refused to tour.
Each night, sadness beats her heart to tears,
the stars cry every night seeing her this way,
in the day, her broken spirit continues to grieve,
misery has come to dine with her, promising not to leave...
Oh! Sweet Tolani! I curse the day that boy crossed her path,
boy who took away her colour, and left her on a colourless path.
