IGI NLA

The sun woke up with a sullen face
while the moon was dancing with zest
in a far away land where sanity lies.

The land grows balder with a painful joy
while feet hurried to fend for the belly
in places as they eat from hand to mouth.

The water emits red blood from its bowel
as men have many times got it raped
by desecrating the source of life.

On this day were we treated as aliens’
with a double edged horns meant for
castaways except you dance to their drums.

The land will someday shoot out seeds
that’ll wax strong like “igi nla” that none of
their thunders could strike down with blows.
