Shopping list.

Across the length and breath of the Lagos municipal, a more selfless person could not be found. From running thankless errands for relatives during her lunch break to making lovely meals for friends who moaned of hunger. 

‘How lucky is the man who finds you.’ he cried, licking his plate.

‘How blessed are the children whose cry bestows motherhood on you.’ he smiled taking the loan.

And so the praises rang until she clocked two scores and more.

They shopped her aisle but filled their carts with alternate brands. 

Time like a flood pushed her deeper into storage.
