the matchmakers


The matchmakers

We don't find them around

They have disappeared from our scene

It will be nice to help singles find partners

During my years in my village

I heard stories about the matchmakers

My mother used to talk about them

She did try to help her sister to fix her date

But my 6th aunty got cold feet

On the day of her meet she refused to come

Though the man came without seeing her

It was a disappointment for my mother

The matchmakers

Though they could make couples to meet

Sometimes they never got married

But life still carrying on
