Purple Hibiscus

Her freedom did Kambili
Sought for with silent tears
The broken étagère tore both
Eugene and Jaja apart giving
No room for repairing it
Aunt’s house gave them
The succour they found wanting
In their homestead since papa
Is stoic and mama is reserved
Papa’s business crumbled at
Their feet to worsen their case more
Did Kambili enjoy her freedom?
