What’s to inherit?

A plate of edikaikong and pounded yam

a side dish of well garnished snails

A carton of juice, a bottle of sparkling water.

………

A plate of catfish pepper soup 

a side dish of well garnished Isi-ewu.

Two bottles of larger.

Both served with the finest chain, on an oak table fit for royalty.

Sunday lunch for the pastor and ‘his friend’ the local government chairman.

……

Jollof rice with no garnishing 

served on a ceramic plate in an incomplete building.

Sunday Lunch for a faithful parishioner and constituent.

The misguided meek shall inherit the earth ravaged by selfish plunderers.

edikaikong, – a vegetable soup with all sorts of seafood, meat, and vegetables.

Catfish pepper soup – same as the name but catfish is expensive.

Isi-ewu – goat head made in a very tasty dish

Snails – not entirely expensive but when well prepared is tasty.

Do google them for the visuals.

Trading places

“I’ll trade you some baked goods enough to last the voyage if you’ll take my boys across, do we have a deal monsieur?”

“I’ll take your offer if it comes with your daughter, the one with eyes like sapphires.”

“Deal” what use was the girl if there was no one to wed her off to.

“What about the other guests?.”

“Pfft! We’ll take them the rest, ensuring to gush and exclaim the glorious loving bond we build as we share in love.”
