The Hunting Expedition

The Hunting Expedition


The land that saw us grow

had become a bad terrain

to tread upon as the python

surfs the land looking for its prey.


The river that emitted water from 

its bowel to give us life had been

soiled by the blood of the fishes

its nurtured till adulthood.


The sky that covered our nakedness

had become a fierce looking furnace

that eats up our flesh, thus making

us look skinny while it grows fat.


Let there be another land!

Let there be another river!

Let there be another sky!

Before they arrive, we need to wake up!
