Poem

Ellipsis

The roads are crossed.
With danger fraught.
Nigeria is caught
In a destruct lurch.

What do we do
To be loose
Do we keep the wriggle
Or blow stop whistle?

Run to meet election
Or pause to restructure
Do we ignore the omen
Pray without an Amen?

With an inner eye
You see a rested di
It simply speaks violence
To a select audience.

Would you conquer
With your militia
Or would you simply
Pass it to military?

Or would you select.
From the worst best
To fill the lofty office
Bereft of moral audit?
