cITY oF oRPHANS

Its all the same:
one hope that at extremes binds us

After witnessing ill, he said
'In Kano lies wrath:
bodies in thousands we saw,
and its same in every town Haram rolls'

Government swift in grace rose
'be not deceived,
for this fights cause is unjust:
and with military might we'd win'

Now its all the same,
our city like Kano, is one of orphans.

  1. I like your poetry. I especially like ur use of imagery, and ur dedication to structured poetry. Keep it up. Writing within a structure/meter/rhyme will really help sharpen your skill. Well done. Dike.
