Poem Ellipsis 3 months agoAdd Commentby Oludotun Saseyi37 Views Ellipsis What seized your hoe? Planting strange seeds as whole? The greedy plant cotton in marsh Thinks it would grow to his mind’s match It did not Think it would sprout fruit He turned to a farmers’ fool It did not. Long man Kerry combs the desert On a jolly lameduck tether With the sultans on sandy ablution He storms our desert on familiar addiction. That old urge for human husbandry A culture of fair-faced banditry. To master the world with a thousand tricks. He frisks your pocket with face cherubic. And my father’s fools still fail To see the enemy’s real face They bask in his slogans They trail his dollars.
