IGBO WOMEN IN AMERICA.
Divisive, loud, selfish, and vain.
Ostentatious, jealous, imitative, and carnal.
Traits inimical to building strong communities.
Diaspora women’s group operate clandestinely,
In support of the entire community effort.
Igbo women form parallel inconsequential groups,
To fight, compete, and overshadow the community.
Igbo Women in America, rethink your ways.
Women are the foundation of society.
Ever heard of The American Jewish Women Congress,
The Chaldean Women Association of America,
Or The Arab Women Defense League of America?
Igbo Women have a multiplicity of Organizations.
Igbo Women Dog Catchers of America.
Igbo Women Gold Wearers of Alaska.
Going by acronyms starting with I, for Igbo,
There are IWAA, IWAM, IPAM, ILOM, IBAM, IKPOM, IAWA,…
And the madness has no end in sight.
Igbo Women, disband your fake associations,
Rally behind your men to advance Igbo interests,
And build strong and lasting Igbo traditions,
In America, Nigeria, Igbo land and world-wide.
Put the much-vaunted Igbo education and values to good use.
A house divided on itself cannot withstand,
External enemies and internal stresses such as divorces.
Igbo women, the time for change is now,
Or watch your communities disintegrate.
