Holy Grandfathers

By Odimegwu Onwumere
When Josef pray,
he prays with the name
of Azik & Ebereham
who are his fathers
and people follow him
and no one complains
but when I pray
with my grandfathers names
they antagonize me
and say that
I am worshiping idol.
How & when
has my grandfather
become an idol?
