HERE [Muse at a Crossroads]

here:

when

the sky was dark

and

the road led no where

at each bend we kept fate

you were here

through the dream’s ray

here:

through the dark moon

through the tiny star

that betrayed tomorrow

tired

yet not deterred

battered by tiny star

that heralded the rain

we kept fate

here:

we followed

like fanatic astronomers

hallowed by divine quest

robed by

freedom

peace

and unity

you were here

Awolowo

           Azikwe

                    Balewa

                            Okpara

                                   Enahoro

even M.K.O.

perhaps Banjo

both defied golgotha

you were here

as ebora owu

the recalcitrant spirit

mounted the third road block

to reap our dreams

here:

when the evil in genius

commandeered ghana-must-go

to plunder the harvest

we kept fate

we crossed fingers

as pro-fes-sor of perdition

iwu

marched us to electoral infernal

you were here

when

umaru bloated at the global altar

“my election was rigged!”

yet the supreme cult

defiled our dreams

a nah-ion-al funeral

here:

when

the assembly of rogues

roger Henry de Bracton

to enthrone our shoeless lad

our badluck

our albatross

About baldpen

Geniuses are born and could be made only through dint of diligence and hard-work. Some bards are sung while some are studied and some lived beyond their time. I want to be known for my lines...
