evil has come

the famous age-grade mourns
those who pour libations
are now a mockery 
by the sides of my forests
the enemies has come out
with bows, arrows and spears
where are the warriors
who gave these forests life
the fire is out 
no new fire-woods are near-by
the few grey hairs are taken away
from the forests
none is here to mend the thatched
roofs of the homestead
where are the okonkwos?
where's obierika?
where's diochi?
where's otenkwu?
the forests have been emptied
fathers have come
to the burial of the sons
aru eme-e, evil has come
to the forests.
