These cells of mine
By Chidinma L. Odili

Noon and night, I think about these cells of mine
Tiny, but worth so much more than just a dime!
Now I realize what it must cost a suitor to his love interest woo
Engaged as I am to my cells in a relationship; love, sometimes hate too
As I check and uncheck the comfort of these cells
Food, temperature, speed of the sung lullaby by the shakers
Conditions must be just right; not too low, not too high
Or my next day plans will be shot if these cells decide to die!
If at any point you find me sad and acting lame
Know at once, these cells are to blame!
For the entirety of my life at this time and clime,
Revolves around these tiny, little cells of mine!
