Poem: From Ibara To Itoku

Olu Omo had dignity.

Pride was his attribute.

Nothing remains sane forever.

Grand Ayekoto in Ceaser’s robes

Olusegun was his Augustus

The dark side of change

It’s constant is a virus

This so-called new breed.

New seed of a bastard son?

Tick-tock insanity.

Alien illiteracy.

A far battle cry

From Oke Ilewo to Itoku.

We dare query the custodians of yen?

Lisabi’s glory reduced to a fantasy lion’s den.

Abami’s once beloved Abeokuta City?

Corralled within this ambience of self pity

Multitudes of left-behinds.

The sickly grin says it all.

Oke Mosan madness.

To Sagamu by express

…Sadness!
