Poetry: NestleMilo by Kristi Popoola

Published

on

A velvety, chocolate drink that shushed me to sleep in my baby years,
As I downed it gladly I was soothed,
As my parents heard that one final ‘knock’ on the ground to signal that I was asleep.
Finally.

Every time the gentle words ‘milo’ roll off someone’s tongue I have a yearning,
A desire to smell it again,
Taste it again,
Feel it again,

That once I drink it, hot or cold, I feel energised.
When the cool, green packaging touches my hands i’m just itching with excitement,
To unveil the sepia brown powder lying beneath,
Waiting to be drank.

And my spoon stirs, ever so effortlessly, in a rhythmic clockwise direction,
My mug inching closer to my lips
as they part slightly,
And the chocolatey mixture seeps through.

‘I Prefer a Cheating Man to a Stingy Man’

Nollywood actress, Queeneth Agbor, has given her opinion on the kind of man she can cope with.

According to the actress, she revealed she doesn’t mind if her man cheats on her as long as he spoils her lavishly with gifts.

Queeneth Agbor stressed that she can cope with a cheating man but not a stingy man.

She made this known in an interview with the PUNCH she said, “I can cope with a cheating man, provided he ‘cheats responsibly’. He could cheat then make it up to me by spoiling me. A man who cheats would eventually get tired of doing that, the same way King Solomon in the Bible got tired. History never fails to repeat itself. He would definitely get tired and change but a stingy man would remain like that for life. Stinginess is not permitted around me.”
