Tragic Death

Maakumbe the gluttonous and obese

A widower moaned for the decease

Left alone with seven offspring

Later brought a wife mean-spirited, thin



With the help of later wife secretly

Baked appetizing pancake hurriedly

Before a stroll, gorged himself thoroughly

With a belly so large, wandered aimlessly


Of pitched dark night, ran his belly

Into sharp stick, taking his life carelessly

Skin of belly pierced, bleeding profusely

Children cried, had funeral sorrowfully


Valuable lesson to, learn recollect

Eat only one third to satiate

Be sure, drink water to a third

The rest, leave for air, a third

Sounds so tragic indeed. Hope it's not based on a very sad reality, though it tragically happens.

Hope all is good,
