"From dusk till dawn she moves around. Without destination, yet shops without money"
'Shopping In Style' by Maxwell Onyemaechi Opia-Enwemuche
From dusk till dawn she moves around
Without destination, yet shops without money
Shame can never deter her moving around
Never have I seen her in any acrimony.
How long will this shopping last?
Where is she going walking so fast?
Shopping everyday in style
Not minding the laughs and smile…
Showcasing her collections like no other
Exuding energy capable of pushing further
As she trudges along without care
Her life is full of stress as people don’t care.
I may say she’s shopping in style
But her madness will walk with her for a while.
