 A song :One-0-0ne Family 

by Augustine Togonu-Bickerstth

One -0 one  family

Am a family man

I have a wife

I have a son

My wife has only a  saucepan

My son is my standing fan

I keep my wife  cooking 

 morning and evening

I keep my  son fanning 

 me by evening

We are the one-0 one family

We stand whilst we are eating

WE have no fancy furniture

We eat in  the morning

 We  eat Nothing by noon

we eat in the evening

We are the one-0 one family

We stand whilst we are eating

We have no fancy furniture 

We are the one0- one family

One -0 one family

Am a family man

Beautifully written, Augustine.
Better family than the average is what I see here.
Many there are far less fortunate -
Theirs would be One-0-0,
Some, 0-One-0,
And for others, it's sometimes 0-0-0.
"Without the gathering of the paupers,"
As the Yoruba often say,
"One may not know how better off one's rags look!"
