Blistered Democracy By: Olusola Awojuyigbe


Blistered Democracy

It was Monday, saddled with hurried sun set;

across the rustic roof of mudded plain

scrubbed with the musky voices of malnourished children,

crawling on their bellies with a poverty perked cheek.


Tuesday came with a laughter ridden mouth;

raining curses of promises,

crying roughly of our anguishes

Pointing disparagingly at our brick falling homes,                                                 .

Wednesday was hopeful to have bought our conscience,

raking dust of truck loaded grains;

en-routing the rain-mined grave to mumbi.

Grains flying, legs racing, rainbow flashes on bowls,

a cut of the looted cowries was our birth right.

Torn cloth was the identification of charity;

they were scrooge on Monday.


The local authorities rode on the ungirdled horses of corruption

with their legs cross like sickle bending.

Thursday came in their big tyred anti-potholes monster truck

songs chanted, drums rolled,

women pounding their waist to the throb of the drums.

Their cloth billows in the breeze for a tear,

Friday was a balm of devil’s bean,

strangers came knocking at our doors.

We have sold our future under the surveillance of ignorance:

with the hurried sun set across the rustic muddled plain,

with the bones of dead trees used as bridges,

with the rain-mined graves,

with our local authorities as the citadel of corruption,

what are we?

Self-slaves of consciences by Saturday.
