Adegoke Adeola – These Days

By  | 

These Days

 

Ages when the future and the

present converse,

The worthy worth of the

future,

And their mind orchestrated by

doom,

I sucked the breast.

Ages when vulgarity sends

sensible messages of hope,

When the clerics preach with

falsehood garment.

With tactics creating egoistic

pursuit,

I sucked the breast.

Ages when time dreams of

unseen hope,

But never stopped beeping for a

second.

And nature wore a skimpy

skirt,

I sucked the breast.

Ages when the sky sweats

without working,

With the emaciated bones

behind bars.

And the strongest leg limps off

the political pitch,

I sucked the breast.

Ages when the nipples become

sour,

With the wound getting sore.

And sincere minds become

sober,

I sucked the breast.

Ages when social vices

become vices in public offices,

With the private breeding

future vices.

And human becomes wet

under scorching sun,

I sucked the breast.

Ages when my inner mind

contrives,

Pushing out my inner thoughts.

And the breast looks

weakened,

I sucked again
