Wounds (Poetry)

I wrote this a few years ago. It’s sad how it still best describes the political climate of Nigeria. I hope something is done – fast! #ISTANDWITHNIGERIA

The wounds of yesterday are yet to heal

I see them still bloody rings on my heels

I feel the sting I want to curse

the unctuous flies that lick the pus

curse their dreadful kind that caused the burn

and the foolish lot that looks and turns

curse the stranger that calls the loss

and my daughters that aid his cause

curse everything he stands to gain

if my wrath of yesterday must come to day
