Our land is under attack by own leaders -Gbemisola Adeoti

The land is a giant whale

that swallows the sinker,

with hook, line and bait

aborting dreams of a good catch

fishers turn home at dusk

blue Peter on empty ships

all Peters with petered out desires.

The land is a saber-toothed tiger

that cries deep in the glade

While infants shudder home

the grizzled ones snatch their gut

from bayonets of tribulation

halting venturous walk at dusk

The land is a giant hawk

that courts unceasing disaster

as it hovers and hoots in space

The land lies patiently ahead

awaiting in ambush

those who point away from a direction

where nothing happens toward the shore of possibilities.

-By Gbemisola Adeoti

This poem speaks about the corruption of our land and leaders and the consequences thereof. The people suffer more than they should.
