POEMS BY ONE MICAIAH

 


FIVE YEARS GONE

 

Yes, Mater
It’s been five
Five for life
Life not given
Given to live
Live to breed
Breed with ease
Ease of peace
Peace of God
God of men
Men of wickedness
Wickedness of the devil
Devil in them
Them no like you
You too make sense
Sense wey nobody get
Get reach your pikin
Pikin wey wise
Wise as a fox
Fox without mater
Mater no matter
Matter said yes
Yes, Matter.
