Of rattling beads

You don’t need to tell me
About the quality of
Your faith
I can deduce that
From your actions
You don’t need to tell me
About the quality of
Your education
I can deduce that
From your words
You don’t need to tell me
About the quality of
Your upbringing
I can deduce that
From your behaviour
Quality beads
Abrewa says
Do not rattle
A good thing
Opanyin says
Sells itself
You don’t need to tell me
Anything
All of who you
Really are
Shows.
