Above Banishment

The walls heard and turned deaf

Heaven swore never to bear witness

The sun saw and went weeping

Hands turned loads on peoples head.


Thou king has a foundation

Of his defecation on the thrown

The palace workers have choices

Who defines the calamity?


The ofor disappears

Another is caved

The throne is empty

King is on it.


The cock craws

The head turns a sacrifice.

People die ignorantly for known reason

Parrots nest, six feet below


In tears we celebrate

The undemocratic rule of abomination

To elucidate, a junta

A woman has eaten the anus of a fowl.

Ndi okenye, are silent.
